Boy Scout builds American flag drop box for Sarpy County 1102 Building

Ben Huebert

Sarpy County has a new place to dispose of old American flags thanks to a local Boy Scout.

Fifteen-year-old Ben Huebert of Troop 359 built the receptacle for his Eagle Scout service project and worked with the Sarpy County Veterans Service Office to complete it. He delivered the box on Friday, July 2.

“We saw a need for a public and secure place for members of the community to dispose of their American flags,” Huebert said. “This is a place for tattered, ripped, faded, torn or old flags, and we’ll monitor the collection box and retire them.”

The receptacle is located outside of the Sarpy County Veterans Service Office in the Sarpy County 1102 Building at 1102 E. 1st Street in Papillion. Huebert also built and delivered a second flag collection box to St. Columbkille Parish in Papillion.

“We are honored to play a small part in Ben’s Eagle Scout project, which required a tremendous amount of planning and hard work on his part,” said Sarpy County Interim Treasurer/Veterans Service Officer Trace Jones. “Thank you to Ben and Troop 359 for this ongoing commitment to respectfully retire the symbol of America’s honor, courage, and strength.”
