Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Alyce at At Home with Books. To participate, post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.
This isn’t one of my happier pictures. This house is right down the road from me and I am completely appalled at how neglected and ragged this flag has become. It’s so incredibly disrespectful. The flag is wrapped several times around the pole. It is faded and torn, and you can see one of the long strips hanging from it.
My father is Marine and is active in the local Legion, and I’m hoping that he can get someone to do something about this. I know there is a protocol for dealing with old, worn-out flags, but I don’t know if there’s a standard procedure for doing it on someone else’s property. I’m not even sure if the homeowners are the ones who originally put it up, but it’s long past time for it to come down.
