Flag Day

We were criticized by one reader for failing to mention in this morning's newspaper that today is Flag Day. The reader's sentiment is that it’s bad enough that
an entire generation is coming up not knowing the meaning or significance of our National holidays, without having newspapers failing to mention them as well. He makes a good point. We knew it was Flag Day and shot some photographs today that represent Flag Day. We'll run one of those photographs in our local news section, as we do each year. His request, though, was to reflect Flag Day today, rather tomorrow after it's over. Likewise, we were criticized last week for failing to mention the D-Day anniversary on June 6. As I said in an earlier post, my father was part of D-Day as a glider pilot in the U.S. Army Air Corps.
