Proper respect for the US flag includes disposing of used and no longer serviceable flags in the correct manner. In Red River Parish, the local Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 7287 provides proper flag disposal.
The post teamed up with Randy’s Hardware on US 71. A flag drop box is located on Randy’s front porch. Used flags may be placed in that box whenever the store is open. If you have a large flag to retire, just bring it inside.
And where do you get new flags? The Coushatta VFW Post has a source. Call 318-932-6557 and leave a message. We’ll put you in touch with a supplier.
