This year I'm going to do it right. Raised the flag to half mast at 0800 just as prescribed. I did that right too - hoisted it to the peak before lowering it smartly to half mast.

It's now 11:20 CDT here so at 12:20 CDT I'm going to raise it to full height.

Why ? Well - flag customs say: "The United States honors its war dead on Memorial Day by half-masting the flag from 0800 until the last gun of a 21-minute gun salute that begins at noon or until 1220 if no gun salute is rendered"

Then it is to be raised to full mast.

Want to join me ?
