Re: The Flag of My Father - Old Glory's long journey.
WOW! What an article. Sadly today nobody teaches flag etiquette to their children. My Father did. He was a retired Service Member and Vietnam Vet. He showed us kids how to fold the flag, how to put it at half mast, and to always keep a light on it at night. At our house it flew 24/7. The flag pole in the yard was something that I'll always remember. Especially after coming home on leave while I was in the Army. Always made me feel good. When he passed away he had a full military funeral and my brother (sad to say) got the flag that draped his coffin. The flag is probably in a closet somewhere, if not in the backyard shed.
Like my Father I fly my flag 24/7 lights on at night, and when it's worn and faded replace it with a new one. Tradition....
