Band of Brothers to collect retired American flags at its meeting on Thursday, Jan. 4.

The group for veterans and family members meets at 11:30 a.m. on the first Thursday of each month in the Evergreen Aviation Museum.

The flags collected at the meeting will be given to the Daughters of the American Revolution for a flag retirement ceremony in June.
