Should US Flags REMAIN at Half-Staff?
Fellow Firefighters ~ Should we seek permission to continue flying the US Flags at Half-Staff until ALL the FDNY Firefighters are recovered and lain to rest?
The President ordered all US Flags be flown at Half-Staff until this Saturday. It will be impossible to recover all the Fallen Firefighters, Police and EMS Officers by then.
I'd like to see all of our Fire, Police, EMS, and Governmental Flags remain at Half-Staff until ALL are recovered and lain to rest; but to do so would require a modification of the President's order.
Your thoughts are hereby requested; together with suggestions on just how to make our feelings known.
Some may feel that we need to return the Flags to their rightful place as a symbol to all that The United States will not be subjected to terrorist threats and intimidation. I personally feel that the Flag should Half-Staffed as our tribute to the Fallen.
May we NEVER Forget!
