DANBURY, Conn. - Oct. 23, 2015 - PRLog -- Civil Air Patrol’s 399th Composite Squadron will collect American Flags no longer fit for service so they can be formally retired in an approved ceremony, conducted by United States Veterans, on Flag Day.

Squadron members will be available to collect your worn and tattered flags on Sunday, October 25, 2015, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Stop & Shop, located on 44 Lake Ave. Ext., Danbury, Connecticut, across the street from Western Connecticut State University's Westside Campus. This service is free of charge.

Small U.S. Flags will be available for children who stop by our post. Brochures will also be available for prospective cadet and senior members.

Teens can join CAP as a cadet if they are at least 12 years old and before their 19th birthday. Cadets can stay in the program until they turn 21 as long as they have not entered active duty and are enrolled in a school.

There are many volunteer positions in CAP for adult members. To find out what positions might be available to you, contact our squadron.
