Fly the Flag

To answer Metroblog reader Rosemary’s question about what the U.S. Capitol flag office does on a daily basis I did a little google work.

The heroes of last week’s security breach work in the bowels of the Capitol building processing requests by citizens for the flags that are flown daily over the Capitol building. You too can own a genuine U.S. Capitol American flag. All you have to do is contact your local Senator or Congressman and for a fee (around $28) they will have the flag office fly a flag for you on your date of choice. Your flag will then be certified and shipped to you.

You can read all about it here on Idaho Senator Larry Craig’s website.

    I had a flag flown for my Dad on Father’s Day for his birthday. He choked up crying when I gave it too him.

    He never flew it as a flag, not the flag pole kind, but loved it none the less.

    Ah, yes – the Captiol-flown flag. That’s a classic gift for Eagle Scouts, if I remember correctly. Good stuff. Always a winner.
