New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - April 11, 2003, New Braunfels, Texas Friday, April ll, 2003 — HeraIJD-Zeitung — Page 7 A Officials urge those displaying patriotism to show flag proper respect By Ron Maloney Staff Writer Nobody knows about tho U.S. flag like a U.S. Marine. Msg. John Medrano of the New Braunfels High School JROTC program said the flag isn’t only about patriotism. It is the symbol of this country. “I remember the first time when I was stationed in the Marine barracks in Hawaii and I marched up there with the other privates and PFCs. You unfurl it, you hook it up, you get ready to raise it and you have this feeling: This is our flag. This is all of us,” lf you have a flag that should be destroyed — American Legion Post 179 has receptacles at the Wells Fargo Bank on Walnut Avenue and at Color Express in the IOO block of West San Antonio Street. Legionnaires will ceremoniously bum the flags. Medrano said. “This flag stands for every American throughout the world,” Medrano said. “That flag is America; that flag is what America stands for. You just get this knot as you’re saluting it, in awe of what that flag really means to a Marine, every other service member and every other American.” In the aftermath of the Sept. ll, 2001, attacks and now with a war ongoing in Iraq, more flags are flying than probably have in a long, long time. And, every so often, one of them can be seen that’s getting a little faded or a little tattered. Sometimes, one of the little car flags folks fly from their windows can be seen laying in the road. As the symbol of this country, Medrano said it is impor tant to treat the United States flag correctly and follow the proper etiquette in its display. The military has many laws about the display of the flag, some of which also apply to the civilian world, Medrano said. One important one is that it Is customary only to fly the flag during daylight hours, although the flag can be flown all night if lighted. It should be hoisted quickly and lowered slowly. If a flag becomes faded or frayed, it should be resewn or destroyed, Medrano said. ITu? preferred method for destroying a flag is to ceremoniously bum it. Do not discard it in the trash, Medrano said. New Braunfels Mayor Adam Cork comes from a U.S. Air Force family and nearly joined the service himself. When flown with another flag or banner, nothing should be flown above or to the right of the U.S. flag, Cork said. In the United States, this includes the flag of the United Nations — except over the United Nations headquarters in New York City, where the U.N. flag is elevated. When flown with several other flags, the U.S. flag should be displayed highest and in the center of the group. The same goes if it is hung from a wall. ‘The most important thing is, you always fly the union to the left or the top,” Cork said. If displayed with other flags, hoist the U.S. flag first, and lower it last. If the flag is to be flown at half-staff, it should be raised to the peak First and then lowered to the midpoint of the staff. When it is lowered for the day, it should first be raised to the peak again. FRIDAY THROUGH SUNDAY ONLY! BEALLS WEEKEND SPECIALS 40°- BUY I PR., GET 2ND PR* 1/2 OFF SHOES FOR THE FAMILY Every brand!
