The flag should be folded in the tri-corner manner recommended by the American Legion and VFW.
The flag should be burned thoroughly on a modest but blazing fire.
Once the flag has been placed on the fire it should be saluted.
After saluting the flag, recite the pledge of allegiance and then have a brief moment of silence.
The flag should be reduced to ashes and unrecognizable as a former flag.
The ashes of the flag should be buried.
