    Exclamation A Potential New Year's Resolution in behalf of our country and our troops

    If you have a "ping list" here on the board or could e-mail people you know that are patriots, could you send this out for this little request on behalf of all our armed forces and veterans? I was ambling around town here in Miami FL these last few days and I have noticed quite a few flags flying over businesses (one a credit union) that are old, faded and tattered. I have sort of resolved to simply remind these businesses that the flag they fly is supposed to HONOR the country and her armed forces and flying old beat up flags does the EXACT polar opposite. I went inside the business and later e-mailed the corporate chain of command. Here is the reply I received:

    Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention. We unreservedly apologize to you and your fellow servicemen for the unpleasant condition of the American Flag. It should be noted that the Branch Manager did report the issue to our Facilities Management Team, the very same day you spoke to her, for urgent attention.

    Please be assured that senior management is currently taking all necessary steps to have the offensive flag replaced within the shortest time possible. We anticipate (given the holiday season) that replacement will take place within the first few days of weekending January 7, 2011.

    We will keep you abreast and advised you once the flag is replaced.

    Then I got a followup e-mail this evening that the flag had indeed been replaced and again asking forgiveness.

    So as a sort of New Year's Resolution, ask folks you know that are patriots to take the time to really LOOK at the flags that fly over homes and businesses, especially businesses that represent the nation like Federal Credit Unions or banks or well whatever and if you see a flag that is in disgraceful shape, ask them NICELY to replace it and also not to just trash the old one but give it to the Boy Scouts or a veterans group for Honorable disposal (ritual burn).

    Thanks, ExSoldier

    Respect your flag AND your military...without them you'd have no freedoms!

    Great resolution, I agree 100%

    I took this picture not too long ago...........sad, slovenly, disrespectful, apathetic.

    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.
