Pa­tri­o­tism should be pro­moted

Townsville Bulletin - - Letters -

IT’S al­ways a thrill to see our sol­diers re­turn­ing home from over­seas duty with the Aussie flag shoul­der patch on their uni­forms.

Why can’t we have this patch on the uni­forms of our po­lice of­fi­cers?

Also, the flag should fly on all gov­ern­ment build­ings such as post of­fices, schools, univer­si­ties and hos­pi­tals.

There is noth­ing to stop us from fly­ing the flag from our front fence or at least on the wall of our liv­ing rooms.

How nice would it be to see it on the top right-hand cor­ner of the front page of ev­ery news­pa­per and mag­a­zine.If ever there is a time for us to dis­play unity in our na­tion, it’s now.This is the scene in the US, and I truly be­lieve that we can show our pa­tri­o­tism the same as them. KENKNUTH,

Kelso.
