Please send only 3' x 5' American made flags with embroidered Stars. It must show a label or company name on the header proving it is Made in America. Too many flags made in other countries are being sold and then donated to Stars for our Troops and our Star Makers. We shall only use American Made Flags to Thank and Support our Military, Veterans and First Responders.  

Please mail flags to (click for printable label):

STOP - Flags with Stars larger than 2 inches across or printed should be donated to your National Cemetery or any veteran organization, scout troop, organizations such as the Elks and Rotary that have Flag Retirements. .
 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 or local cemetery to be flown over veterans. 


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 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. 

It is highly suggested that you use the USPS for all mailings. 

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