Eagle Scout Land collects flags for VFW

Lincoln County, Mo. - VFW Post 2282 is the beneficiary of an Eagle Scout Service Project created to collect worn flags for retirement with honor and respect. Eagle Scout candidate Micah Land of Troy, a member of Troop 390, led his fellow scouts and family members in building the donation box. 

“My reason to complete this was that my troop and the VFW hold a flag retirement ceremony every year,” Land said “Throughout the year, we collect flags in need of retirement from the public. 

“Now with my project, and thanks to the support of Old Monroe Lumber Company, our community now has a drop box located at the VFW.”
