Unserviceable Flag Disposal
American Legion Post 331 is the local agent for the collection and disposal of unserviceable American flags. The Post maintains two collection points on the Seven Mile Island. The point in Avalon is located on the north side of the Borough Hall outside the Senior Center and the one in Stone Harbor is in front of our building. In partnership with the Radazieta Funeral Home in Cape May Court House, collected unserviceable flags are honorably destroyed. (Over a 1,000 flags per year are disposed of by the funeral home.)
Additionally, the Post distributes the star field from the unserviceable flags to a non-profit, charitable organization in Florida in support of their program called Operation Shoebox, which sends a star with a care package to overseas service members.
