The flag will stay up for the weekend, with a light on it at night. I have friends and relatives memorialized at Arlington National Cemetery, and other places around the world. I don't visit, but I do raise the flag. Nearer home, last year I noticed that a neighbor 4 blocks away did not have his customary American and Marine flag up, which normally flew year round, it had not been up for most of the year. I stopped and asked why, and found that he had passed away a few years ago, and his wife was now not up to the task. I asked permission to raise the flags, and promised to return and lower them. It meant a lot to her as she stood on her porch and watched while my wife and I took proper care of the flags. Sunday, her daughter was there, and participated, morning and evening, followed by Memorial Day itself. I am the only veteran on my street, and the only flag flying. We went for a bike ride this morning, about 3 miles, and saw just one flag (His father was Navy, WW 2). How many flags are up, or will be up on Memorial Day among the members here?
