As an American, as a veteran, I am appalled at the lack of respect people who are flag fliers have.
Now mind you, I am so glad you want to fly them, but you don’t even care when your flag gets tattered or torn. I drive around the country and see so many businesses with these huge flags, or even small ones that are completely ripped to shreds. Wake up, unless that flag was flown in a war, it shouldn’t look like this. There are many websites that show flag etiquette; Google it [and] you will find as many as you want.
But don’t just throw your flag in the garbage, there is a procedure for flag destruction. Call your local VFW or veterans association to help you. It is just time that we regain some respect for the flag, teach our children to respect the flag and our country. If we want it to be here much longer, we need to take care of it. And do not be surprised if you get a phone call from me or my fellow Americans who call and tell you that your businesses are a doing a disservice to our country by not showing any respect for our flag!
