Dear Business Owner,
We are inviting you to join/renew in our Merchant Flag Display Program. This program provides that the American Legion Orville Jackson Post 127, Eagle Idaho will display the American Flag at your place of business on 13 major flag days during the year (except during inclement weather).
Dates for 2021:
Martin Luther King Jr. Day January 18th
President’s Day February 15th
National Vietnam War Veterans Day March 29
Memorial Day *Black streamer hung until noon May 31st
Flag Day June 14th

Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day *Black streamer hung all day December 7th
* Noted days when black streamers will be hung. The United States Flag can be used to express sadness at the death of an important person or group of people. This is when the flag is flown at half-mast or half-staff. In some situations, it is not possible to half-staff a flag — for example, when it is permanently fixed to a staff or mounted to a wall. In that case displaying black ribbon streamer above a full-staffed flag is an appropriate alternative form of mourning.
Orville Jackson Post 127 will display and remove the American Flag at your place of business on the days noted above. We ask that you and your employees do not remove the flag. Our members will be fully responsible for its removal and storage. If the flag is stolen, we accept full responsibility of the flag, not you.
Your donation helps the American Legion serve our Community and Veterans through a variety of programs including: High School Oratorical Contests, Scholarships, Firearm Safety in Education, Boys State, The American Flag appreciation programs in area schools, Wreaths Across America, and The American Legion baseball teams at Eagle High School to mention a few. To find out more about us and what we do please visit: www.Post127.org.
The tax-deductible fee for this annual service is only $35 per flag. A tax receipt will be emailed to you after payment has been received.
