    Tomorrow is Flag Day. At the sake of appearing stupid, which I frequently have done over my lifespan, I have a question. My Dad died in 1995. My Mother received the flag from his coffin and had a case made for it. She has kept that flag on the wall of her living room since. She died on March 21st of this year.

    Cleaning her personal possessions, my brothers and sisters discussed what we should do with this flag. Can it be flown tomorrow? If kept in its case and we are gone, how should this flag be disposed of? Can we donate this flag to a local service organization? The flag of our country and its meaning to my father means a lot to us. You who have served perhaps could tell us the protocol to use. John
