Hooley and other members of the Pinkerton Academy JROTC program refurbished the box, Steadman said.
The idea for the project to install the box developed after Morgen Hooley’s father, Frank Hooley, mentioned that a number of American flags were being thrown into the trash, Steadman said. Frank Hooley had asked his son if the project wasn’t something for the JROTC to take on, Steadman said.
The box is large, about 4 feet tall and weighs from 150 to 200 pounds, according to town officials.
