When you drive by a school or government office building, over the last year flags have been flown at half staff (mast) almost continuously in honor of all of the lives lost during the COVID-19 pandemic. Who gives the order, and how does the order get lifted?
Today we celebrate our Veteran's. Thanks to them, we get to enjoy our freedom each and every day. Also, today we thank those currently serving defending our freedom. Part of the celebration, you will see the American flag flown proudly. Does the flag need to be at half staff or half mast though?
