Willard A. Taylor: Missing flags

July 3, 2014 

In the years following the 9/11 travesty, it was difficult, especially here in the South, to drive a single mile without seeing numerous vehicles proudly displaying Old Glory.

During Memorial Day weekend, on D-Day June 6 and on Flag Day June 14, driving in Wake, Durham and Chatham counties, I saw exactly one American flag displayed on a vehicle – on my car – and I even noticed that most emergency vehicles no longer have flags or flag decals.

I hope we can do much better during the upcoming Independence Day Weekend and every day for that matter.
