Does anyone know why in Missouri that our flags were flown at half mast?
Apparently the Governor issued a statement to do this from June 1 to June 6th in honor of fallen soldier from Columbia.

Oh.........., thank you. I wasn't aware that a state Governor could order the Federal flag to be at half mast. But now I know. Thank you.
I was at the air show, when they flew in his body. You would not believe the protesters there, protesting this young man's life and his duties as a soldier. It was heartbreaking. I felt embarrassed and extremely sad for this young soldier's family. It was awful. But thank you. I live in Columbia, and noticed all the flags lowered, and I was just wondering what happened.
I don't understand Americans sometimes. He died! How dare anyone protest at his homecoming.
I remember the lyrics of a song "A debt that I owe, on a bet that I lost." Well, keep betting people! These soldiers are doing what they believe is their duty. I would hate to think what our world would look like today if protesters ended World War I or World War II.
I hate war, but unfortunately it is a necessary evil. Just because I long for peace, that does not give me the right to sully the names or taint the memories of the Soldiers who Serve our Country!
Sorry, for ranting... Veterans and Soldiers... They didn't start the war, they just do their duty. It's their job! I couldn't do it, and I am pretty tough, but I couldn't lay down my life for my country, for freedom.
