    Proudly fly your US flag at full-staff on July 27th to honor the sacrifices made by the US military during the Korean War. This date used to be a date of half-staff observance, but on July 27, 2009 Congress enacted the Korean War Veterans Recognition Act amending Section 6(d) of Title 4 of the United States Code, inserting the National Korean War Veterans Armistice Day, July 27th, into the list of days to fly the US flag (at full-staff). If you reference a copy of the US Flag Code published prior to the 2009 Congressional enactment, you won't find July 27th listed as a special date to fly the US flag. Newer versions of the Flag Code do list July 27th. The following is a link to the July, 2009 legislation:
