Upside-down flag not the right means of protest


I am writing to display my neighbor’s disdain and disrespect for the American Flag. He is a WWII vet of battleships according to him. I am a vet of the first Gulf Conflict, and have worked for the government in Shiprock and Chinle IHS after my naval service. What I did for the Navy is not publicly known, and I will not provide you with that info. I spent at least part of my time in the IHS training U.S. Army Special Forces soldiers how to amputate limbs and prevent amputation of limbs.

If anyone in this reading area believes that flying the U.S. flag upside down is good, I disagree. I believe in the freedom of speech down to burning the flag. I do not agree with flying it upside downm though. Flying our flag upside down means you are in dire straights without a means of resupply or air support and you are going to die if you don’t get that. I am not a member of forces that would ever agree to such sissyhood. If you think disgracing my colors are a means of protest because of a Democrat/black person being president, you should be ashamed. I hope you mend your ways.
