Memorial Day

On the way home today, I saw so many flags that were improperly displayed. If you are going to display our flag, please make sure that you do so properly. Any other way is just disrespectful, and it might as well not be up at all. If you're not sure about how to display it, please, find out before you put it up. Okay, I'll step off my soapbox now. I just felt the need to get this out there.

On Memorial Day, the flag should be hung at half-staff until noon, when it should be raised to the top of the staff. Read more about when and how to display the U.S. Flag here: Flag Etiquette

Enjoy the rest of your long weekend!
