Memorial Day weekend is upon us, and between your backyard barbecues and beach parties, be sure to take some time to honor the real reason for the holiday: to commemorate those who have lost their lives while serving in the U.S. military. If you’re looking for ways to show your patriotic pride this weekend, Ace Hardware is giving away free American flags in honor of the holiday.

On Saturday, May 26, the hardware store chain will give away 1 million free 8-by-12-inch flags in stores. A second flag will also be donated to local Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) posts, where they will be used to mark the graves of fallen military members on Memorial Day.

No purchase is necessary to obtain a flag, and they will be limited to one flag per person. The flags will be available in participating stores while supplies last.

The flag give-away is part of a collaboration with the VFW.

“Working alongside Ace to support our veterans is natural fit – their stores are located in communities across the country, just like our local Posts,” VFW National Commander Keith Harman said in a press release. “We are grateful to receive this donation from Ace Hardware and their consumers, and we look forward to honoring our veterans in a big way this Memorial Day.”

How will you spend this holiday weekend?
