Fly your flag today in honor of D-Day? Sure, go ahead

Today is the 69th anniversary of the Invasion of Normandy in World War II, a date generally called D-Day. I usually get at least one e-mail request: No, you don’t have to fly your flag. This is not one of the days designated by Congress for flag-flying.

But you may fly your flag, and probably, you should. If there are any D-Day veterans in your town, they’ll appreciate it.
