A drop box for used American flags was installed on June 14, Flag Day, at the American Legion Club in St. Joseph.

The box for collecting used flags was built and installed by Lee Eisenschenk.

In 1937, the American Legion national convention passed a resolution encouraging the proper disposal of a flag that is no longer fit to be displayed.

Used flags are disposed of in a burning ceremony.
