Memorial Day Flags

Order forms and a postage-paid return envelope for Memorial Day flags and markers have been recently mailed to all American Legion Posts and VFWs for completion.  The Lackawanna County Veterans Affairs Office is asking the organizations to return the forms as soon as possible so that the overall order can be submitted early.  The office is trying to head-off any supply shortage or delivery issues caused by the virus/pandemic.  

The office will notify everyone when the shipment arrives and provide information on the location for the pickups so that preparation of the cemeteries for Memorial Day by the various organizations and groups can begin.
