Jim Ridenour Show proper respect for our colors

Modesto celebrated the 140th annivarsary of its Fourth of July parade on Friday. I did as I always do when the color guard goes by. I stood, removed my cap and stood proudly at attention before and during the passing of our colors. I and a few others were the only ones who did this. I was disgusted at the lack of patriotism. Here is excerpt from “The Daily Flag,” Parade Watchers, Section 9 of the Flag Code, which addresses this in detail.
