Army vet here with a retired Navy officer next door who should know the flag is flown with a light at night. I approached him, in a neighborly manor and his response was they don't light the flag on a ship at night. We live in the desert. I'm tired of seeing the flag flown in the dark and am about to light it up from my house. However, I would prefer he take responsibility and do the right thing. At this point I'm wondering if there is someone I can report this to localy like VFW or maybe the Boy Scouts should come over and talk him into putting up a light.
