Display the American flag properly



Traveling around Grovetown, I see many American flags displayed. Most of them are faded or torn and should not be flown. One furniture store in Grovetown not only has a faded flag on display, they also fly it at night without a light shining on it.

If you are patriotic enough to want to fly the flag, then please replace it and dispose of it properly when needed. If you have questions about the proper display of the flag, contact any Veterans of Foreign Wars or American Legion organization.
