    Flag Etiquette on Memorial Day

    Lots of people fly the U.S. Flag on holidays...but on Memorial Day, most people fly it incorrectly as the etiquette is different than any other day...its an unintentional error, no doubt...

    On Memorial Day, according to the U.S. Flag Code, the flag should be raised to full staff, then lowered to half staff in the morning...

    At High Noon, the flag should then be raised to full staff for the remainder of the day...

    Good reminder. Learned a couple of things, and reminded of a lot more. Thanks
    Don't tread on me or mine.

    For those of you who fly the flag on a pole off the side of a building or in some other unique way you can look it up here----> USFlag.org: A website dedicated to the Flag of the United States of America - United States Code .
    Socialism tries to give the slave all the advantages of his security together with the benefits of freedom, and, in the process, destroys both the free and the enslaved.
