Ace Hardware honors fallen heroes with a million American flags

Ace to collaborate with the VFW to distribute one million American flags nationwide this Memorial Day.

In the true spirit of Memorial Day, Medford Ace Hardware is again collaborating with the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. As an essential business, Medford Ace Hardware, a department of Medford Cooperative, remains open to safely serve our neighbors and the local community. Consumers who visit Medford Ace Hardware on May 23 will receive a free 8” x 12” American flag* while a second flag will be donated to their local VFW to be used for marking and honoring veteran graves this Memorial Day.

“Medford Ace Hardware and the Medford Cooperative salute the many brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country and we look to honor them this Memorial Day by participating in the 1 million American flag giveaway,” said Chip Courtney, General Manager. “We are grateful to be collaborating with our local VFW, who has provided so much support to veterans in our community.”

Last year, Ace Hardware sent a total of 535,000 flags to 2,230 local VFW Posts across the country. The American flag giveaway aligns with Ace Hardware’s long history of supporting veterans nationwide. Ace’s very name is a commemoration of the “Flying Aces,” the courageous fighter pilots from the First World War. Ace’s patriotism continues through the support of its veteran retailers, and the sincere appreciation for all the veterans and active-duty military who work in Ace stores, distribution centers, and its corporate offices.

*Flags will be available in participating Ace stores, while quantities last. Limit one 8” x 12” flag per customer. No purchase necessary.
