Flag needs attention


To the Editor:

How many of you have noticed the extremely tattered American flag flying above a business near the Oak Bluffs Steamship wharf?

If the owner had a bit of pride in its condition, he would have replaced it long ago. The owner may or may not be ashamed or simply doesn’t care. However, with the observation by this writer and others who honor the symbol for which the flag represents, perhaps the owner will now be aware of how disgraceful the condition of his flag is.

For the owner, and others who wish to dispose of their flags, any VFW post on the Island will accept them.
