I post something similar to this every year on my FB sites...Still not sure it gets thru....So tired of the almost automatic "thanks for your service" routine....

EDIT: Dont forget to fly your flags at half staff from sunrise till Noon on the 29th....

Little known fact:
If you have a flag pole that you raise it on you must raise it to the top, lower it to haft staff for the day, then when you take it down you first raise it back to full staff then lower it all the way and fold it properly.
