DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Tuesday morning United States commanders with the American Legion held their Garrison Flag Ceremony.

A Garrison Flag is used and flown by the U.S. army and the largest national flag.

City commissioners and the mayor met at the civic center to honor the momentous moment.

Commander Lehman Irby explained how it’s just replacing an old flag with a new one.

Irby says how proud they are and what this means to him.

“It’s a tradition for us and we are happy to be apart of it. It’s a lot of people that fought and died for this flag and our flag and to me..that’s my heart,” Irby said.

Irby explained what an honor it is to always be apart of this.
