9-11 Memorial
Remembering those who perished.

9-11
A year ago on the tenth Anniversary of 9/11, the
Memorial on Ground Zero was dedicated.
Online here at:
Eleven years ago the world changed with the tragedy of terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center towers in New York. Our lives have changed; the way we talk about terrorism.. al-Qaida, Taliban, ground zero..our expectations of air travel security, the Patriot Act (link to the US Justice Department). Hundreds of organizations and their workforce are engaged in counter-terrorism, homeland security and intelligence.

And American soldiers continue the fight in the ongoing war in Afghanistan.
A remembrance of  9/11 can not be complete without a salute to our American soldiers and National security. Our American soldiers fight to keep the perpetual terrorism manageable, to help citizens of foreign lands reach for peace and freedom...and to keep foreign terrorism from our borders, from our schools, shopping markets, recreation areas, cities and communities.


New York Times Special Report on Afghanistan
 published 8-26-12
Below are excerpts from a timeline article about the war from 9-2001 to August 2012 Click the link above for the full article.
    
"American officials entered 2012 hoping they were nearing a turning point in Afghanistan and the nation's longest war, which began with a United States invasion two months after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. " 
"A milestone was reached in August 2012, when the United States military reached 2,000 dead in Afghanistan, based on an analysis by The New York Times of Department of Defense records."

The U.S. Flag Code
The United States Code is the official compilation of the Federal laws of a general and permanent nature that are currently in force. Each Title is divided into Sections, and then subtitles, chapters, sub-chapters, parts, sub-parts, or divisions. Titles may also have appendices which may be divided into sections, rules and/or forms.    
So it is not surprising that the US Flag Code is difficult to maneuver.

 
The U.S. Congress called for a clarifying interpretation of the code and in 2008 the Congressional Research Service provided the document linked here.   

US Flag Code

We use this most recent clarification on the US Flag Code dated APRIL 2008, by the Congressional Research Service,
Report for Congress
The United States Flag: Federal Law Relating to Display and Associated Questions, both Title 4 and Title 36.
    
     
 

The Congressional Report on the US Flag Code also contains the most recent addition to the US Flag Code,  P.L. 109-243,  

"The Freedom to Display the American Flag Act of 2005"

which addresses   

"Restrictions on Display of the Flag by 

Real Estate Associations".
