The Jonathan D. Rozier Post 164 of The American Legion is encouraging all citizens to bring their worn, tattered and otherwise unserviceable U.S. flags to their flag collection sites on three Saturdays in November. According to the U.S. Code Title 36, Chapter 10:
The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.
The Katy American Legion Post is qualified to meet the requirements for a dignified retirement of old flags and will do so on December 5 at 4 p.m. at the VFW Hall parking lot on George Bush Dr.
The flags can be dropped off from 9 a.m. to noon at the following locations:
- Krogerâ€™s @ Hwy 99 and Highland Knolls on Nov. 13
- Krogerâ€™s @ Mason Rd. and Westheimer Pkwy. on Nov. 20
- Brookshire Bros. Grocers @ Franz Rd and Katyland Dr. on Nov. 27
All area Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts are invited to participate.
