U S American Flag - flown at half-staff or half-mast, the U. S. flag should be hoisted first to the peak for an instant and then lowered to the half-staff or half-mast position. The flag should again be raised to the peak before it is lowered for the day.
True heroes don't wear capes - they wear dog tags. Happy Memorial Day 2012 to all the men and women who have served our country, and to their families who have also served. May God bless you, and may God bless America!
