ALL AMERICANS

Ask your Congressmen to amend the half-staff flag code.

      Arlington, TX

The flag should be flown at half-staff through out the entire state for active duty military, law enforcement and firemen, and people elected to public office who serve our country.
This honor and sign of respectful mourning should be reserved for those who actually serve our communities and country by remembering the sacrifice they made and paying respect for their devotion to America!
