I read with great interest your story of April 23, 2004, entitled "Veteran steals unfit American flag."
Recently, we sent Mr. Cundieff a flag that was flown over the Capitol Building in Washington so that if he ever feels the urge to "retire" a flag from another location, he can replace it with a new one.
I would also like to remind the people of Rim country that you can request a flag to be flown over the Capitol in commemoration of special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries and retirements or in dedication to patriotism and service to our nation. Please call my office in Washington at (202) 225-2315 or visit my website, www.house. gov/renzi for more information.
