Re-elect Dan Lipinski Congressman

Rep. Lipinski Celebrates Flag Day at a Ceremony in Chicago


On Flag Day, June 14, Congressman Dan Lipinski (IL-3) joined 11th Ward Alderman Jim Balcer, other veterans, and representatives from the Chicago Fire Department and the Chicago Police Department for the largest flag ceremony in the nation.  During the program in the Union Stockyards, 7,000 tattered and worn American flags were properly disposed of.

“This enduring symbol of freedom is so much more than a piece of cloth,” said Rep. Lipinski.  “Although burning a flag is most commonly thought of as a form of protest, it is the only way to properly retire a worn flag.  I thank Alderman Balcer and veterans groups across the district for providing area government organizations, businesses, and residents with a way to keep this symbol that many men and women have paid the ultimate price for from ending up in a landfill.”
