Medford, OK – Free flag retirement boxes have been provided to Grant County through a partnership with the National Flag Foundation, National Association of Counties, and the National Sheriffs Association. These free flag retirement boxes have been provided to member counties. The boxes are available to anyone who would like to properly retire their U.S., Oklahoma, or POW flags. The program started in July at pilot sites in Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, and North Carolina before expanding to Grant County. Flag protocol requires proper disposal of old or damaged U.S. flags. Flags deposited in the boxes will be collected by Grant County 4-H and retired in a proper retirement ceremony.
