American Flag Etiquette

Submitted By: – Click to email about this post
I drove by the Bunkhouse Restaurant today and saw a Trump flag flown above our American Flag on the same halyard. This is a violation of Title 4 United States Code:
§ 7. Position and Manner of Display. C: “When flags of States, cities, or localities, or pennants of societies are flown on the same halyard with the flag of the United States, the latter should always be at the peak.”

I asked the Manzanita Police about the display and was told it falls under the Freedom of Speech Amendment.

Oh well; the First Amendment applies to traitors and liars as well, but this dishonorable display is insulting to all of us; not just our veterans.

I am a Vietnam War combat veteran. This is Memorial Day weekend, a time to honor those fallen serving our country. Men in my squadron were killed and a few spent years as Prisoners of War. RIP Dick Keirn, Cham Chesnutt, Mike Schwan, Ben Ringsdorf, Marty Massucci and Chuck Scharf.
I know that the family that runs the restaurant has nothing to do with the insulting flag display and I shall continue to eat there. I hope that others will continue to enjoy the fine food they provide and ignore the un-American display outside.
