FLAG: All-weather is all right 24/7

| June 18, 2010 10:00 PM

In response to Mrs. Carol Sorenson’s letter regarding proper display of the United States flag. In your letter  you stated, “Never should the flag be left out in inclement weather (of which we have a lot in Idaho!)”   

As a 21-year veteran of the United States Air Force I am proud to display our nation’s flag 24/7.  At night it is lighted and since it is an ALL WEATHER flag I do not remove it for rain or snow. If you will kindly reference the following U.S. government site you will that I am correct in doing so:

A little bad weather should not deter our commitment to this great nation.
