    That's not cool. And I couldn't care less about what two consenting adults choose to do, so it has nothing to do with what it was replaced with.

    Why the hell is the rainbow flag being flown at a Vietnam Veteran's memorial AT ALL?

    Its time to get the National POW MIA FLAG ACT amended to include a 365 day requirement and to include all monuments whether privately owned or publicly owned.

    As of now, its only required to be flown six days per year at certain locations.

    Somebody should have just pulled the flag down and burned it in protest.

    That would have been so very 60's.

    I agree.

    I don't know why access to the flag pole's halyard is that easy. It should be "vandal" proof so that the halyard is not easily accessable from the ground level. It should require a 20 foot ladder to be reached.

    Anybody know the flag code? My company has one pole, and they hung a pride flag under the American flag.
    For some reason I don't think you can do that. I can't complain though. I'll be retaliated against.

    This isn’t the memorial in DC, it’s some local county one in MD.

    On a single halyard, the American flag is highest. Other flags can fly below them.

    You have no rights. Only to accept what others want.

    The '60s counter-culture is still alive and well protesting the Vietnam war, not realizing that in doing so, they are denying the remembrance of Humans that lost, way, way more than their Right to Marry some dude.

    There is no reason for that flag to be at a memorial site period.

    True enough but don't let the real enemies of America escape blame and that being the RINO Party.

    What a disgrace, my heart goes out to the friends and families of the missing that spent decades looking for answers and closure! The ultimate face slap...

    BTW, saw an article on NECN about a gay flag burning this week in Burlington, VT caught on tape. Google and watch, it made me laugh :D

    Whoever put that there needs to spend 15 minutes in a dark alley with three Marines. Or one Marine.

    just wrong. doesn't matter who, what, where and why, just wrong and i can't believe this decision wasn't thought out a bit more. you'd think they'd involve the local veteran affairs office, get a little feedback, ya know?

    i just reread the article and saw they have a guy who is lgbt affiliated on the city council. he probably was having a hissy fit and was going to create some problems for the city if they didn't raise that flag. squeaky wheel syndrome.
