CATONSVILLE, Md. (WJZ) — A Maryland Boy Scout helped retire hundreds of American flags over the July 4th holiday weekend as part of a project he hopes will earn him scouting’s highest rank.

Jack Callahan spent several months asking for people to donate their old, worn flags so he could properly dispose of them.

On Sunday, he live-streamed himself and others burning the flags, which is the proper way to get rid of old flags.

In total, 390 flags were retired at the event.
