CHEERS AND JEERS — For May 25-26



... to the improper flying of the American flag.

My Aunt Norma Ehalt Kinder was in the Spars (Coast Guard) during World War II. When seeing flags not flown properly, she would be very upset, and she would once again tell me the proper way to fly the American flag.

The flag is not to be flown if it is tattered, faded or torn. If it is flown at night, it is to be lighted. I see so many flags not flown properly.

I know the people flying them are very patriotic, but need new flags or lighting.
