Looking for Veterans in the Region

Looking for Veterans in the Region

Mayor Carnovale signing flag

A Cameron County soldier returned from Afghanistan carrying a flag from his unit. It sat in the same box for years, until this week. The flag bears the name of three fellow servicemen who died in a mission. 

The unnamed Cameron County soldier approached businessman Jim Quinn about flying the flag outside of his business in Emporium and inviting veterans to stop and sign their names and branch of service. One by one veterans have been stopping at Jimmers Bargains and using the felt tip marker signed near the names of those who did not return to their hometowns.

“The idea came from the soldier and on Saturday July 5 the flag will be returned to him,” explains Quinn. The business is open Tuesday through Saturday on East Fourth in Emporium.

I hate to point this out, but according to flag etiquette: "The flag should never have placed upon it, nor attached to it any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature." Sec/Treas Potter County Honor Guard.

Good one! Deface the American flag! This wasn't a concert or something....what are these people doing? Giving autographs?

I would like an explanation on whose brilliant idea this was and why they did it.

Good intentions but that was a real dildine of a move right there to have a flag defaced. Like I said though I seen the good in the intentions.

Don't worry about defacing it. It's probably not a REAL American flag. I'm sure if you look, it was made in China like the cheap flag lapel pins that our politicians are fond of wearing these days. You know...the politicians that sold our once great country to the lowest bidder for cheap labor.

Well what's the difference? The guy in the picture is wearing flag pants for heaven sake!!!!!!!!!! Disrespectful?? I think so!

You want to talk about defacing the American flag? What about all of those people who fly the flag all in tatters and faded and keep on displaying it this way? This defacing and disrespectful to me. I say this is a very honorable tribute to all vets and is a very nice thing to do. Who cares about archaic rules and regulations that should have been updated decades ago.

Please, people! This veteran lost three brothers in combat. I'm pretty sure that who ever wrote the rules for flag etiquette would recognize this as an acceptable exception. Some people who comment on here cannot help themselves and end up being negative no matter what the subject is. I understand why Max would write what he did because he is a true patriot too and it's okay with me that he is using this subject to educate the public about the rules for handling the flag. But some the feckless oafs who comment on here do not have such worthy motives. God bless all who have served this country!
