A flag should always be respected. Especially when that flag represents all the great things America stands for. Things like liberty, justice, freedom, and service to your country.
Did you know that burial flags are provided free of charge for most veteran funerals? When my father passed away in 2002, our family not only received a flag, they also provided military honors at his funeral.
No, he wasn't a war hero...at least not to anyone but his family. Or then again, maybe he was. After all, he left the comforts of home in his youth to fight for what he believed in during World War II.
And for that service, our family received a full-sized American flag. And that brought up the question of how to properly display it, with the honor it so fully deserved.
