It's obvious to me, and everyone else here that Pat is in Iraq and friends helped him by moving all of his things. I see a flag that has seen many days proudly displayed(likely it was displayed as long as he has been deployed). When Pat gets home he will properly retire his flag.

I’m sure he would take care of it when he got home, but is that what you want? Do you want him to come home from Iraq to find how his “friends” and Wreckin’ Crew brethren treated the symbol of the country he is serving? Do you want him to come home to find as you put it, “a flag that has seen many days proudly displayed”, tossed aside like a used tissue or grimy shop towel?
It wasn’t Pat who tossed the flag there, that was done by somebody who is only patriotic when he has time to be or when it serves him. It wasn’t Pat who took the picture and posted it to this board without regard for the way the flag is shown there. It isn’t Pat that can do anything about it right now. If I where (or claimed to be) Pat’s friend, I’d do what I could to right the wrong before he came home to find how the friends he trusted to keep watch over his family and possessions treated the symbol of his country. If nobody can be bothered, so be it. I’m just glad I don’t have to rely on friends like you.
Yeah, I guess it turned into another one of “those” posts. I didn’t know that was Pat’s flag when I posted my first comment. Now that I do, the proper response was, “Thanks for noticing, I’ll make sure I take care of that before Pat sees it.”
