senate Bill S. 693

Should the POW/MIA Flag be Displayed at Prominent Federal Properties With the American Flag?

Argument in favor

The POW/MIA flag isn’t displayed often enough at U.S. federal properties and offices. As a nation, the U.S. should honor those who’ve been lost during service, and flying the POW/MIA flag on a daily basis is one way to do so.

Yes! POW and MIA Veterans should NEVER be forgotten. Never.

Veterans are too often forgotten or ignored. It is not assent to our nation’s warmongering to honor and remember those who are still missing or captured in the performance of their duties. It might remind our leaders about the high cost of their imperialistic decisions.

We fly both flags at our house and are ever reminded of the ultimate sacrifices made by those who came before us.

Argument opposed

The POW/MIA flag is already flown on important holidays related to veterans when it’s most appropriate to display that flag at major federal properties. Increasing the frequency with which it’s flown isn’t necessary or particularly meaningful.

As wife and ward of career military, I’m pretty sure most vets are more concerned with substance than display. Raise pay for lower grades especially those with families. Improve services at the VA. Consider not wielding our boys for political purposes.

Some in America are already flag worship fanatics. Adding war worship both reeks of special interest pandering and passive-aggressive jingoistic grudges. As a country we already struggle with our war addiction. Let’s not add to it by permanently putting it on the alter of “flag”.

Stop meaningless votes. Our Nation is in crisis. Congress must heal itself from impeachment insanity. A valid impeachment requires all of Congress' attention until it is resolved. The fact the Congress is hiding the current illegal, unconstitutional crimes proves the criminally of Congress actions.

    This is a difficult yes or no. Anywhere all military flags are raised daily, yes, this flag should be raised also. But does this flag need to be raised at a courthouse daily? Or at public schools? I don't think so. On Memorial Day and Veterans Day it is more than appropriate to raise these flags everywhere, but perhaps the powerful image it is now may be diminished over excessive use.

    We need to honor those who serve and sacrifice for this nation. The POW/MIA flag should be displayed at appropriate sites like a memorial to service people. But, requiring it be be displayed in more than that is too much. What's next?

    Without hesitation, absolutely and positively YES! Now consider flying the Rainbow flag as well because of the tens of thousands of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Questioning men and women who offered up their lives to defend our Democracy, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Freedoms & Responsibilities we ALL live by and hold dear.

    Considering the fact our government overlords are sending citizens to fight orchestrated wars for profit, the least they could do is fly a flag to honor their stolen lives.

    Yes. Absolutely. We must never forget the troops who are MIA, or were POW's or still may be.
