Sorry but my photographer missed a lot of the action.  Ceremony closed with playing of Taps.  The Tyler Fire Department collects the flags and folds them, the Civil Air Patrol unfolds the flags and retires them by burning.  Members of the color guard brough pieces of the flag, red, white and blue strips and told their meaning.   Actually the colors were never officially given a meaning, only on the Presidential Banner.
