Until all troops are home

April 20, 2013

I understand that the flags may be at half staff for the tragedy in Boston, but what I don't understand is that the flags aren't at half staff until every troop comes home....

I believe the flags would be at half staff for eternity if we did this because we have a lot of brothers who have never come home and never will

I don't believe they flew at half staff for any other military action or either WWI or WWII. I'm not sure it is a good idea to start now.

We the US is fighting in a war, we fly our flags at half-staff during a war? It amazes how the right is for war until there is democrat in the WH then they are hippies.

I just find it sad how the current administration has received a free pass from the majority of the press for the past five years regarding our troops being killed and injured. During the past administration they kept a running tally daily (not out of respect for the troops) yet now its rarely even a blip on the radar even though they continue to be injured and killed. Instead of finger pointing and passing blame, lets give more effort in honoring those who have served and sacrafised so much and bring our hero's home.

"only the president can order flags at half-staff"

Only on federal buildings.

Knowing how Obama feels about our military, we all know that would never happen anyway.
