On Memorial day, the United States of America’s flag is raised briskly to the top of the staff and then solemnly lowered to the half-mast position, where it remains until noon. After the hour of noon the flag is raised to full-staff for the remainder of the day.
The half-mast position remembers the more than one million men and women who gave their lives in service for their country.
The flag, raised by the living, symbolically means a promise to not let the memory of our service men and women’s sacrifice be in vain.
