The Flag at Half Staff

When at the funeral service the other day, we noticed that the flag was flying at half staff. We wondered if it was always at half staff at the National Cemeteries.

I found my answer at the website for the Nashville National Cemetery.  The flag is flown at half staff on the morning of Memorial day and during interment services.

So, apparently the flag that day was in honor of Mr. Mapes.  What a respectful thing that is.
