Do You Know Your American Flag Protocol?

Did You Know?

Did you know that American Flag Protocol (or American flag etiquette) is actually part of federal law? It provides general guidelines to answer some common questions about how the American flag should be handled and displayed. Although it is federal law, there are no federal penalties imposed for failures to comply with the law. 

While stationed at Los Angeles AFB, I drove by this motel on the way to work one morning and I noticed that the US flag was flying upside down. People were entering and leaving the building as if nothing was wrong. So, I pulled in and asked one of the workers if everything was okay in the building and I notified him that they were dislaying the flag upside down. He said everything was cool and he fixed the flag immediately, but he didn't understand why I was asking if everything was okay. So I explained to him that a US flag flying or displayed upside down is a distress signal (extreme danger to life or property)

Movember, the grass roots movement to raise awareness about men's health issues is nearly complete, and for those of you who are growing a mustache to show support for the cause, I salute you. For those who didn't participate or weren't aware of Movember, there is always next November.

Just like the mustaches of the Men of Movember, male military spouses come in all shapes and sizes. Some are stay-at-home dads, some run businesses from home, and others balance careers outside the home and taking care of the family.

LA JOLLA, CA--(Marketwired - May 7, 2013) - National Military Appreciation Month (www.nmam.org) founder Alice Wax informs America that the President of the United States has proclaimed May is National Military Appreciation Month. The recognition was designated by the United States Congress in 1999 and in 2004, as a means for Americans to say "Thank You" to the men and women of the of the U.S. Armed Forces -- all branches of the services, National Guard and Reserves ("Citizen Soldiers"), those who have served throughout our history, and all of their families -- over 90 million Americans still living today and to those sacrificed throughout America's 237 year history. The month-long recognition provides an opportunity for all Americans to express their appreciation for the contributions our armed Forces have made to the building and safeguarding of this nation.
