SO.. What is Proper Etiquette for The Flag?

hmmmmmm.... Lets See:

Raising and Lowering the Flag

The flag should be raised briskly and lowered slowly and ceremoniously. Ordinarily it should be displayed only between sunrise and sunset. It should be illuminated if displayed at night.
The flag of the United States of America is saluted as it is hoisted and lowered. The salute is held until the flag is unsnapped from the halyard or through the last note of music, whichever is the longest. 

H/T to "wirecutter"

  3. Stupidity, hatrid and bigotry are gushing from these two morons.
