This Saturday is Veteran’s Day. In honor of the occasion and in recognition of their service, State Representative McDermed is sponsoring a flag exchange program to allow veterans to obtain a new flag to fly at their home or business. This opportunity is available while supplies last. The program is free of charge and provided at no cost to taxpayers.
In addition, residents of the 37th district wishing to turn in an old US flag for proper disposal may bring their used flag to Rep. McDermed’s district office. Area residents may bring their flags in for proper disposal, while veterans may receive a new flag even if they do not have one to exchange.
Rep. McDermed’s District Office is located at 11032 W Lincoln Hwy in Frankfort and is open from 9 am to 4 pm Monday to Friday. The office is not open on Friday for Veteran’s Day. For further details, call 815-277-2079.
