The Jonathan D. Rozier Post 164 of The American Legion is encouraging all citizens and small businesses to bring their worn, tattered, and otherwise unserviceable U.S. flags (5’x 8’ or smaller) to their flag collection sites on two upcoming Saturdays.
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.
Your Katy American Legion Post is qualified to meet the requirements for a dignified retirement of your old flag and will do so in December in conjunction with the VFW Post 9182’s Pearl Harbor Commemoration at the VFW Hall on George Bush Dr.
The flags can be dropped off from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the following locations:
- Kroger at Hwy. 99 and Highland Knolls on Oct. 27 and Nov. 3
- Kroger at Mason Rd. and Westheimer Pkwy. on Oct. 27 and Nov. 3
