Flags don’t belong on trucks. They get shredded by high winds generated when the truck moves. You can see how that flag is ripped up on the ends. Very disrespectful. Firefighting my time in bunker gear is over but my memories will remain. It can be soiled on a flag pole but that is why you are supposed to take it down when a storm is coming or high winds are expected. The back of a truck is no place for the flag.

Why is it disrespectful to display the American flag anywhere? It is disrespectful when you let it touch the ground, burn it while stepping on it or spitting on it. Firefighting my time in bunker gear is over but my memories will remainAn American flag is tattered every day from weather and is at sometimes retired and should be burned as is custom. In this circumstance, I think it is alright to hold this flag and care for it appropriately.
It is not disrespectful to display the flag in an appropriate place. It is disrespectful to tear it apart. The US Flag Code instructs that flags are not to be flown in storms. Driving can subject a flag to near-hurricane force winds every day that you drive. If you drive 50mph, the flag is subjected to 50 mph winds. The Code also instructs that tattered flags should be retired, not flown.

If your flag is torn up and soiled, it’s disrespectful to fly it, period. What you do is your affair, but I refuse to see violations of the Flag Code as patriotic. Most service members, who are taught how to display the flag correctly, support the Code. Even Boy and Girls Scouts cringe when they see a torn up flag. I’ve made myself clear and am done answering your absurd and repetitive questions. Intelligent people reading this will see through your blatant attempt to call the Flag Code unpatriotic because it limits how you can fly flags, because that’s what you’re doing.
