Lt. Kyle Fansler, Division Chief Jerry Jenkins, firefighter Eric Wesbury and Battalion Chief Clayton Farr Jr. of the Columbia Fire Department take down the American flag at the Salute to Veterans Memorial Day Parade on Monday. A smaller flag was used this year so that it could be removed more quickly in the event of bad weather, which canceled the event.
