New Flag for Memorial Day

As a tribute to my father-in-law, we   fly a new fag to replace the  old one that we had in the flagpole.  This was the first  Memorial day that my FIL is not around since he passed this last March.
 Our Memorial  weekend was full of  activities that  were dedicated to our beloved WW2 Vet.  Remembering him on that special day was  emotional for us especially to my husband.  He tries to  suppress his  feelings  but it shows in his words and action.
 Aside from this flag, we also  put a small flag on  my FIL's  grave when we visited  him and other loved ones in the cemetery.
When the flag is in such condition where it is no longer  a fitting emblem for display, it should be  destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.  
June 14 is the Flag Day so this  post is perfect for that celebration too.  The especial holidays to fly a flag  includes Inauguration Day, President's Day, Armed Forces Day, Patriot Day, Pearl Harbor Day, Veteran's Day, Constitution Day, Memorial Day, Labor Day, POW/MIA Recognition Day and other special holidays.

It is wonderful how you fly your American flag so proudly. Wish more people did. I have many service members in my family including my husband, son and a son-in-law who have served or is serving.

What a nice thing to do on Memorial Day. Our fallen soldiers have given up so much for our freedom. It's great that you got a new flag for your home and for your father in law's grave.

This is a great reminder that we need a new flag! Our current one has some wear and tear from decades of flight.

It's great to get a new flag when yours has deteriorated. We keep an American flag and an Irish flag flying in front of our home. My hubby is from Ireland.
