These fallen heroes represent the character of a nation who has a
long history of patriotism and honor - and a nation who has fought
many battles to keep our country free from threats of terror.
United States Flag Code

flag should be again raised to the peak before it is lowered for the
day. On Memorial Day the flag should be displayed at half-staff
until noon only, then raised to the top of the staff.
