Our Flag Reflections on Flag Day

first_img The American Flag represents over 240 years of freedom.  However, that freedom has come at a heavy cost, from the Revolution to the Global War on Terrorism. As a nation, we have sacrificed much to protect the freedoms we hold dear and to promote democracy in every corner of the world.Everyday across the United States of America, we proudly fly the flag to remember those who have given the ultimate sacrifice to preserve our great heritage of freedom and opportunity. When we swear allegiance to our flag it is not mere tradition but a solemn and sacred vow to those heroes who have shed their blood in exchange for our freedom. It is a promise that their sacrifice was not in vain.The flag is a symbol of freedom and hope. Hope, that in spite of the struggles we may face, our children will have a bright future, free from oppression and full of promise and liberty.As we approach Flag Day, June 14, I would like to share some guidelines for showing the proper respect to our flag, the symbol or our great nation.No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America; the flag should not be dipped to any person or thing. Regimental colors, state flags, and organization or institutional flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor.When displaying the American flag, the U.S. flag is always the first flag raised and the last to be lowered. No other flag should be hoisted above it, and no other flags may be larger.During the Pledge of Allegiance and National Anthem, citizens should stand and face the flag, remove any headdress and either salute or cross their chest with their right hand.The American flag should fly only from sunrise to sunset; however, the flag may be displayed for 24 hours or more if it is properly illuminated through the night hours.The American flag should never touch the ground nor should it be written or drawn on, disfigured or defiled in any way.When a flag is worn or tattered and can no longer serve as a symbol for our country, it should be destroyed by burning in a dignified manner. Many American Legion posts conduct dignified burning ceremonies, often on Flag Day. If you have such a flag, I encourage you to take it to your local post and let it be retired with the respect it deserves.Remember that we say the pledge, not to a piece of cloth, but to the ideals that it represents, “to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”I hope you will join me in reminding others to give our flag the honor it is due, not just this Flag Day, but every day of the year.
