Please send 3' x 5' American made flags with embroidered Stars. Look for a label or company name on the header. NO silver color grommets, please. 

Please mail flags to (click for printable label):

Flags with Stars larger than 2 inches across or printed  should be donated to your National Cemetery or veteran organization.
 We cannot use them!!
Flags received at military funerals that were with a casket or urn and in pristine condition, they may be donated to your local funeral home. 


To ensure a return response, please make sure your e-mail address, full name and city and state is included in all correspondence.

Phone calls messages also need full information as to the reason for the call, your name and organizations name. Please don't ask to call because you have a question - ask the question.

We do not take credit card information over the phone. 

We are a group of volunteers that are patriotic, who take old tattered and faded US Flags, retired from service and we pass the legacy of their embroidered Stars to those that defended them. 

Please include your name and address on all letters and packages. 
We do not share the information, but we acknowledge your donation and/or flag. If you wish to not be acknowledged for your donation, please note it.

Please do not guess the postage, it must go through the process at the post office as each state has a different cost. We must pay your postage because the flag is too important to refuse, even when it has the wrong size Stars or is printed. 

The best embroidered stars for this project are from 3 ft x 5 ft  American made flags.
