Flags to find new resting place
Hawkins said he took a picture of the box and brought it back to Ernie Stevens, VFW post commander and director of the museum.
Ruston’s postmaster was able to find an old-fashioned, round-topped box which was donated. Stevens sanded and painted the box in patriotic colors, and Rapid Signs donated the decal and design work.
The box is located outside of the museum on Memorial Drive, and the VFW post will also be selling flags through the museum if someone wishes to buy a replacement flag.
Proceeds from the flag sales will benefit the VFW. Flags are nylon and are $30.
