John J. Morris Post 62

Flag Retirement


As a unit member of the Northwest Valley Veterans Assoc., (NWVVA) one of our shared duties is that of Flag Retirement.  When a U.S. flag becomes worn, torn, faded or badly soiled, various agencies bring these flags to Sunland Memorial Park & Mortuary, 15826 N Del Webb Blvd, Sun City, AZ 85351for proper disposal.



The number of daily (Monday thru Friday) volunteers we need depends on the number of flags to retire. We like to start around 8 am (or earlier depending on weather) and it could take upwards of 4 hours daily. You should bring a sturdy set of gloves, and something to cover your mouth from the smoke as we use burn barrels, and something to eat or drink. Please contact Post 62 Commander Tom McClain, Color Guard Captian Barney Becklund, or the post adjutant at or at 602-769-3684.


The next scheduled date for Post #62 is the week of

26 December 2022.
