Wow Zenga. What an extremely unhelpful answer.
Shumba, I would start with the AMVETS. There are six local posts in DC and their contact information can be found at http://amvets.org/dc.html. I’m certain they will be happy to assist you and will likely volunteer to send someone to pick the flag up from you if you cannot get it to them. My grandfather was involved in his AMVETS Post and took part in flag disposal ceremonies. I can assure you, the AMVETS take it quite seriously and don’t consider their efforts extreme or to be based on urban legends.
