Flag Disposal Box

American Legion Post 149 constructed a flag disposal box and placed it at the Community Thrift Store, located at 110 Samaritan Drive just off Highway 53 near the Health Department in Jasper. The box is located at the corner of the building next to the drop-off point for the Thrift Store. It is painted red, white and blue and is labeled as a "Flag Disposal Box". Our Post collects the old worn out American flags that are placed in this box and passes them along to Hill City Boy Scout Troop 288. The scout troop then disposes of the flags on their camping outings using the proper ceremony and honor that is so justly deserving of our American Flag, at that time.

$30 yearly dues
Must be active or served in Military
