Flag boxes available for vets

Morris veteran Ted Storck organized the effort to get flag boxes made for the families of veterans who want to display their loved one's funeral flag.

The flags draped on the coffins of Stevens County veterans can now be housed in a place of honor. Morris-area veteran Ted Storck worked with Aaron Carlson Woodwork and Ace Hardware to make the wood and glass flag cases.

"Too often the flags get put in a drawer or a closet and they don't get displayed," Storck said.

The flags are available free to the families of all veterans, whether or not they belonged to a service club, said Storck.

Pedersen Funeral Home in Morris has the boxes available, Storck said.
