Flag Disposal

We retire thousands of local flags each year and we do it with the dignity and honors our National Ensign deserves.

    I live in Chapel Hill and have an American flag that’s been hanging by our front door. We’re replacing it with a bigger flag, with clips, so it flies better. How can I donate or dispose of this one I’ve taken down?

    Hi Robin – You can kindly drop it off with us at our location at 3700 West NC HWY 54. If noone is at the Post, kindly loose fold it (so wind does not blow it) and place on our bench outside the door. We will take it from there.

    Best,
    Matt Attaway
    Adjutant
