Former Army First Sergeant Provides Help to Mayor to Honor Old Glory

In the spirit of letting “others know how to properly display our nation’s flag,” former Army first sergeant John A. Mulshine wrote in a Letter to the Editor of The Monterey County Herald today, as follows:

“...and anyone else who flies the flag: Some very simple rules to follow.

1. Sun up, flag up; Sun down, flag down, and then put it away.

2. If the flag is left up after sundown, illuminate it.”

As Mayor Sue McCloud flies her residential flag 24/7 without illumination between sunset and sunrise, John A. Mulshine has done a public service by informing her, a former federal government employee, of proper flag etiquette.
