FLAG BURNING SERVICES

If you have flags that are damaged and no longer servicable, flag etiquette says they should be burned and not just thrown in the trash.

Please place your damaged flags in the bin in front of our Post's building and we will dispose of them properly through burning.

Flags we recieve that are not too badly worn are given to local funeral homes that do cremations to cover a veteran's body prior to the cremation process.
