Flags at half-staff

Williamsport Sun-Gazette

Recently, a letter from a South Williamsport retired military vet was published urging everyone to lower their flags to half-staff until our troops come home. This appeal was made while flags were lowered for the tragedy in Boston, yet he noted our troops are dying every day and apparently wasn't aware of flags being lowered in their honor. As a military vet myself, I am very sympathetic to his appeal, but I am also comforted and guided by the half-staff provisions of the United States Flag Code.
