No reason to disrespect the flag
As a veteran of the Korean conflict, I am appalled by the disrespect being shown by some individuals or businesses that are showing their displeasure with the re-election of President Obama by displaying our national flag upside down.
Having served in the U.S. Navy as a signalman aboard a destroyer, I am disgusted with those individuals or businesses that have shown such disrespect.
What's this country coming to? Would you display the flag upside down if you didn't hit the lottery or if your local high school football team lost a game?
A close buddy of mine named George, who served with me in the Navy, recently passed away. He was a Frogman, now known as a SEAL. Luckily, those individuals or businesses that displayed such disrespect of our flag won't feel the anger George would show them if he were with us.
Having been a bank executive, I am aware how some individuals are upset by Obama's re-election because their “bottom line” will, in their estimation, suffer.
I only wish the news media would give the names of the persons/businesses that have shown such disrespect of our flag.
