On Memorial Day the flag of the United States is raised briskly to the top of the staff and then solemnly lowered to the half-staff position, here it remains only until noon. It is then raised to full-staff for the remainder of the day.
The half-staff position remembers the more than one million men and women who gave their lives in service of their country. At noon their memory is raised by the living, who resolve not to let their sacrifice be in vain, but to rise up in their stead and continue the fight for liberty and justice for all.
Thank you to all the men and women who have served our country and fought for our freedoms.
