Final Resting Place (Wandering Away from Work Six)

As one who brings his lunch to work, I rarely get out of the office until quitting time. When the weather’s right, however, I can be found wandering away from work. I have made a few discoveries along the way.

Final Resting Place

 
I saw this on a walk back from my mechanic’s garage, the same day that I captured WAW Five. It made me wonder how many other countries so revere their flag that they carefully document how to display it, care for it, and dispose of it. The Veterans of Foreign Wars no doubt could teach all of us a lot about respect for country.

    EXTREMELY true words Mark…… (thanks for turning comments back on!)

  2. That’s the first time I’ve ever seen anything that was supposed to be used for flag disposal. Interesting.

  3. Dave – I have no idea why comments were turned off for this post. Weird.

    Simon – Me, too. I called and also e-mailed that VFW post to find out more about 1) what qualifies a flag to go into that box and 2) where it goes after they put it in there. I didn’t get a response in time for this post, but I hope to speak to them and get the story. There’s another possible post out of that, too, but I won’t give it away.
