    In South Renovo Borough in Clinton County, Pennsylvania this memorial's military service flag display is an example of how differently veterans understand the order in which these five military service flags should be arranged. In this case, the order, from left to right, is shown as US Army, US Navy, US Marine Corps, US Coast Guard and US Air Force. I contacted the local veterans organizations and recommended they consider the Department of Defense Directive 1005.8 which requires these service flags be ordered as follows: US Army, US Marine Corps, US Navy, US Air Force and US Coast Guard. I also recommended viewing a short YouTube video produced by the Colonial Flag Foundation and narrated by John Hartvigsen, US Army veteran and NAVA member.
