Fort Logan dishonored veterans by saying no to group placing American flags at cemetery
“Group stopped from setting flags at graves,” Nov. 11 news story.
Wow. What a slap in the face to all living and deceased veterans displayed by the staff at Fort Logan National Cemetery. The policy and the actions of the staff by not allowing flags to be placed on the graves on Veterans Day rank right up there with the NFL players who kneel or sit during the national anthem. No difference.
Whoever devised this policy and those who support it should be terminated immedi- ately. Please change this policy and show those deceased veterans the respect they have earned.
I am a totally disappointed and ashamed 30-year Air Force veteran.
The Fort Logan staff who prevented flags from being set on soldiers’ graves made a mistake. The rules need to be changed. Thank you to all who served, and to the flag-placing volunteers who honored them.
