There is no need to dispose of your dirty, tattered American flag anymore.
Gettysburg Flag Works has a new program called Stars for our Troops. If you send them your old, worn flag, they will clean it and carefully cut out the stars. The stars are then attached to a card that reads,
"I am part of our American flag that has flown over a home in the U.S.A. I can no longer fly. The sun and winds have caused me to become tattered and torn. Please carry me as a reminder that you are not forgotten"
How awesome is that? Just think, every single flag you send will result in a cherished reminder of home for 50 of our brave military members! Please visit Stars for Troops for more information on this fantastic program.
Maybe you can contact or American Legion and ask them to do the same with the flags they collect. Tell your about it too!
