JES Foundation Repair in Virginia Beach recently honored Veterans by delivering 45 worn American Flags to Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW). JES accepts and collects timeworn flags all year and distributes them to Boy Scout troops and VFW posts with proper retirement programs.
“Many people have old American flags and aren’t sure what to do with them,” stated Stella Waltz, vice president and co-founder of JES. “The JES offices throughout Virginia serve as a resource where people can hand over or drop off their old flags. It is gratifying to see and hear expressions of relief from people who have long flown their flags with pride.” As a part of JES’ patriotic efforts, Waltz also provides free, educational presentations on the history and proper etiquette with the American flag at schools, churches, civic organizations, corporations and retirement communities.

“We appreciate Stella and the JES team’s efforts,” said Teresa “TJ” DeChamplain, VFW Post 392 senior vice commander, who retired from the United States Navy. “Many VFWs, Boy Scout troops and other organizations accept flags, so there are many places to retire Old Glory when it’s time.”
