Thank you for this site where it seems one can find most any information re: our blessed U.S. Flag. I got here by googling "American flag etiquette" btw. You may be interested in what caused me to look for this or another forum like it. Yesterday, 5/23/14, I had an interesting conversation w/ mgmt at our local Wal-mart. I had noticed that they were flying the U.S. flag at half-staff on this, a Friday of Memorial Day w/e. I asked if they were sure they should be flying the flag at half-staff "today" instead of just on Monday, Memorial Day. It put them in a quandry as they had been instructed by "corporate" to do so. I told them "maybe they should ck w/ the VFW." I was 95% certain that the flag was only to be at half-staff on Monday, but to be certain, I decided to find out for sure today, Saturday of Memorial Day w/e, for my own flag flying knowledge. So, thank you again for your site & forum. All are welcome to visit our National Historic sites of a fully-restored Civil War fort & National Cemetery #1...Arlington Nat'l Cemetery is #2, in Fort Scott, KS. May God bless America...again!
