The American Flag should never be displayed with the union down, save as a signal of dire distress. And you no Anti-Fa assholes, your not liking the current President is not dire distress. The Flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise. It should never be carried flat or horizontally, but always aloft and free.
Our unfurled banner, which symbolizes the love and pride that we have as a nation, is a poignant reminder of America's greatness and our fortune to live in a country which values freedom above all else. It signifies the commitment made by our fallen comrades who battled bravely to defend the honor of this sacred emblem - our American unity, our power, and our purpose as a nation, and it exemplifies the devotion of our leaders who continue to uphold its promise of liberty, justice and freedom for all.
Perhaps the most important rule involves how citizens should behave around the Stars and Stripes: The flag of the United States is the emblem of our identity as a separate nation, which the United States of America has been for more than 200 years. The custom is to display the flag only from sunrise to sunset on flagstaffs in the open, but it may be displayed at night upon special occasions to produce a patriotic effect. When the flag is hung vertically on a wall, window or door the Union (blue) should be to the observer's left. When the flag is hung either horizontally or vertically against a wall, the Union (blue field) should be to the observer's left.
There is no more cherished symbol of the United States than the American flag. Whether you fly a flag daily or bring it out to honor our country on special days, taking care of the flag is important and a sign of respect. If your flag is looking dingy or is soiled, The U.S. Flag Code does not prohibit washing flags. so washing it is quite acceptable.
But should your American flag become torn or tattered, or too dirty to clean, it's time to dispose of it properly. But when we think of items that we regularly throw away or recycle, the American Flag doesn't often come to mind. That's because we hang them proudly and the thought of throwing them in the garbage bin, or even the recycling bin, would feel unpatriotic. Before you gasp at the thought of burning our Flag, this method of burning is in no way haphazard or unpatriotic, rather it requires a specific ceremony, where the flag is folded correctly, laid on a bonfire and burned patriotically; that is to say while being saluted, or having someone at the burning ceremony recite the Pledge of Allegiance or sing the National Anthem.

I do believe I found the location of the ATM, which may be closed now. It's the Navy Federal Credit Union, 10129 Jefferson Davis Hwy, Ste 103, Fredericksburg, VA (mapquest photos). Rick
Coincidently, the U.S. Army is celebrating its 242nd birthday today; founded on June 14, 1775 - more than a year before the Declaration of Independence - when the Continental Congress authorized the enlistment of expert riflemen to serve the Colonies for one year. Prior to that day, colonies had their own militias with no unified chain of command from place to place. This year's birthday theme is "Over There! A celebration of the World War I Soldier" in recognition of the 100th anniversary of World War I. The day will be marked with celebrations, military balls and traditional cake cutting ceremonies held at military bases and communities across the country. Can you find where this Army celebration was going on?
Also, does anyone else find it odd the very folks who haven't accomplished jack shit in Washington over the last six months, still manage to find time for baseball practice?
