The Honor Flag Program has been suspended for the
Winter and will resume on April 22, 2017 at 11 AM.
Our Honor Flag Program
                     Honor Flag program

           We heed the words of our first Commander-in-Chief, General George
    Washington, who in 1798 said, “The willingness with which our young
    people will fight in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly
    proportional to how they perceive that Veterans of earlier wars were
    treated and appreciated by their country.

           When a U.S. Veteran dies they are entitled to a “burial flag” (5’ x 9’),
    issued by the Veterans Administration to cover their casket as grateful
    thanks for their military service to their country.  The mission of the
    American Legion is to preserve the memories of those men and women
    who served their Country with honor.

           It is fitting therefore that we honor these Veterans by raising their
    flags over Veterans Memorial Park to honor their military service.
    Families with Veteran's burial flags can contact our Post at #914-510-2975
    to arrange to drop-off their flag for participation in our Honor Flag
    program.  Each flag will fly for a two week period during the months of
    April through November.  When the flag is lowered from the pole the
    family has the option to have the flag returned to them or have it retired
    during the American Legion's flag retirement ceremony at Flag Day each
    June.  A certificate is placed in a display case at the base of the flagpole
    informing everyone using the park of the Veteran being honored with
    their flag aloft.

Beginning on Saturday, April 22, 2017 the flag on the
Veterans Memorial Park flagpole is flown in memory of and to
honor the military service of
