Thank you for the article “Seasons of the Flag” (February/March). As one who was embarrassed and hurt by the nonsense espoused by so many in the sixties, I am heartened that the media, at least some of the media, would say what you said in the article. I am not a “love it or leave it” person, but I have lived abroad in a repressive society, I served in our military, and I raised a family in this country. We recognize the value of what we created, and it does not hurt one bit to show it. Your article was refreshing.
