According to the United States Code, Title 4, Chapter 1, Section 8: “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.” In an effort to honor our deceased veterans whose final disposition includes cremation, and to assist with the proper and respectful disposal of those flags that are no longer worthy of display, we are organizing a flag retirement program. It is our desire that the casket of every deceased United States Veteran whose family has elected cremation be draped with the United States Flag. Flags that are no longer suitable for display may be brought to our Woodbury Location at 34 Hunter Street, Woodbury, NJ 08096 or to our Washington Twp. Location, 573 Egg Harbor Road, Washington Twp., NJ 08080 Monday through Friday between 9 AM and 4:30 PM. We thank you in advance for your help in making this program a reality and for all you do for our veteran community everyday. Read more
