Altmeyer Funeral Homes offers service to dispose of flags
NEWS9 IS EVERYWHERE —
Altmeyer Funeral Homes is continuing the Retire Your Flag Program this year.
People can bring their tired and tattered flags to any Altmeyer location and they will be properly disposed of.
Jim Altmeyer, president of the funeral home, attended West Point. He later returned from the Army to run the business.
“We have a strong connection to the military and believe in what the military does for the community, and it's a way we can honor them,” said Outreach Director Sarah Barickman.
The flags are sometimes cremated with veterans when they pass away. They will also hold a ceremony in June along with The American Legion.
