Flag Etiquette at Rocky Point

Today we had a story about Joe Azevedo’s flag atop the Fir tree. I suspected some might quibble with the proper etiquette being displayed, because the flag does not come down until Joe goes up and puts up a new one. According to the VFW’s primer on flag protocol, it should have a light.

This is really important to some of our readers, including a man who called me this morning to say that he appreciates what Azevedo is doing, but there are many like him who break protocol without knowing it.

My question is if Jack Hamilton can get away with wearing this shirt, shouldn’t we cut Joe a little slack?
