Re: wow.. I was censored!
RJay, I respect your point of view.. And I would probably have a greater respect of its symbology, if I was allowed to serve (I was medically disqualified... twice) when I tried enlisting.
None the less,
4 USC Sec. 8 01/03/2012 (112-90)
TITLE 4 - FLAG AND SEAL, SEAT OF GOVERNMENT, AND THE STATES
CHAPTER 1 - THE FLAG
Sec. 8. Respect for flag
No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of
America; the flag should not be dipped to any person or thing.
Regimental colors, State flags, and organization or institutional
flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor.
(a) The flag should never be displayed with the union down,
except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger
to life or property.
And I feel that we are headed that direction... of course this is my opinion and belief.. and Im allowed to express myself as such.
Again.. no disrespect to those who were allowed and have served (wish I could have).
You can't prevent the inevitable.. only alter its time span!
