Anti-flag flying syndrome struck again, this time at a California middle-school, when, two-weeks ago, a 13-year old rode his bike there with America's flag attached, in tribute to veterans, especially his grandfather. School officials told him to remove it, fearing "tensions" related to students bringing Mexican flags to school for Cinco De Mayo. Thanks to media and Internet coverage, a barrage of protests followed, forcing a reversal of that pandering decision. All the sweeter, a large contingent of military vets on motorcycles showed up at that young student's home a few days later, and escorted him to school, with American flags mounted, proudly flying. Those great veterans share a bond with their patriot-comrades, across the nation, who provide honor-guards for processions of our fallen, and who, by their presence, help keep the nut-cases away from military funerals.
