Proper US Flag Half-Staff Etiquette

As we gear up for Memorial Day weekend, all of us Americans should take the time to honor those servicemen and servicewomen that have gave the ultimate sacrifice by lowering the United States of America flag to half-staff for the first part of the day on Monday, May 27th, 2013 until 12 noon. However, we need to execute this honor the right way. Let’s show you how!

number1
fullstaff

number2
halfstaff

Please show our flag the proper respect, by ALWAYS raising it to full staff before lowering to half-staff. We want to wish you a very happy Memorial Day and please be safe out there! USA!
