The American Legion Post 233 of Cambridge, Iowa conducted a flag disposal ceremony so that people could properly dispose of their tattered United States flags.  This slideshow has photos from the June 12, 2010 ceremony during Jubilee Days. The color guard provided a gunfire salute followed by Taps played by two buglers.
