Today is the day we honor our flag.
Here a few more flags.
A flag on Bunker Hill
Flags at Hector International Airport in Fargo ND
Avenue of flags in Detroit Lakes Minnesota
When I was in sixth grade in a two room schoolhouse we had a flag pole and our teacher Mr Martin Cox taught us proper flag ettiquette. I didn’t know at the time but he was a Veteran and after he served his time at various army bases and a year in Korea he was honorably discharged and took advantage of the GI Bill to further his eduation and become a teacher.
This was the old school house: fifth grade on the left and sixth grade on the right! In later years it became a Community Center and nowadays it is a rental.
I am certain that the time Mr Cox spent teaching us how to honor and care for The American Flag touched more students than just me. Mr Cox died last winter he was 83 years old. I wondered then how many students did he teach flag ettiquette to over the course of 32 years?
