LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Please remember U.S. Flag etiquette

Published: Sunday, August 18, 2013 at 03:55 PM.

Dear editor,

Please put out a note informing people of the proper display of the United States Flag when flown on their property.

My biggest concern is during nightly hours when the flag should be illuminated — and I have noticed many flags are not. 

This is what is stated in the U.S. Flag Code Section 6a: "when a patriotic effect is desired, the flag may be displayed twenty-four hours a day if properly illuminated during the hours of darkness."

What's your view? Write a letter to the editor.
