Learn how to display the flag properly

May is National Military Appreciation Month and United Spinal Association, a national veteran’s service organization, reminds Americans that they can honor the members of our armed forces this month and always by flying the American flag. To do so properly, the organization has produced a pamphlet titled “How to Display Our Flag.” The pamphlet can be downloaded at no charge by visiting http://www.unitedspinal.org. You can also order a free single copy of the pamphlet from the web site or call United Spinal’s publications request line at (800) 444-0120.

“United Spinal encourages Americans to show support year-round for our troops by displaying out flag appropriately,” said Executive Director and veteran Gerard Kelly. “When one views the flag, one thinks of liberty, freedom, and pride. The flag is how America signs her name.”

“How to Display Our Flag” explains the proper etiquette for showing the American flag and contains a list of days when the flag is traditionally displayed, such as Independence Day, Memorial Day, Veteran’s Day, and many others. This informative pamphlet also provides instruction on how the flag should be displayed on a variety of specific occasions such as parades or public functions.
