Memorial Day weekend will have many people traveling, picnicking, or just enjoying peaceful times at home. Whatever you do, don't forget those that served this great country and gave their lives for it.
On June 22, 1942, Congress passed a joint resolution, later amended on December 22, 1942, that encompassed what has come to be known as the U.S. Flag Code. Here are a few:
It should be displayed at every public institution and in or near every polling place on election days, and at schoolhouses during school days.
It should not be displayed on days when the weather is inclement.
No other flag should be placed above the flag of the United States or, if on the same level, to its right.
When displayed from a staff in a church or auditorium, the flag should occupy the position of honor and be placed at the speaker's right as he faces the audience.
It should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise.
When the flag is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem, it should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.
(Certainly not in riots)
GOD BLESS US ALL!
