Treat the flag with respectful protocol

I have recently witnessed a great deal of patriotism expressed through the flying of our nation's flag. At this time I feel that it is important to remind people of the official flag protocol.

1. If the flag is flown at night there should be a light shining on it.

2. It should never be flown in the rain.

3. It should not be worn as clothing.

4. If it becomes faded or torn it should be taken to the nearest American Legion Post and cremated.

Let's do our best to care for our flag which so many of us veteran's have fought for.
