Replace torn and tattered flags

As Memorial Day slowly approaches us, let us be reminded to check our American flags, please. If you have a flag that is torn or tattered, please take it down and replace it. Bring the flag to your local American Legion for proper disposal. Flying a torn and tattered flag is disrespectful to our American troops and our great country. Our flag is meant to be flown strong and proud not only on Memorial Day, but every day. So, again, please don't fly our American flag in such a disrespectful manner. God bless the USA and to all our American troops, thank you for my freedom with all that you do for God and country. God bless.
