The Naval Jack flag is flown at the Rock Island Arsenal, Rock Island Illinois, for Vetran's Day. There is a Confederate Cemetary and every single grave has the Naval Jack placed on it to honor these soldiers for their service.

And you are exactly right about Freedom of speech. Too many people want to tote "Freedom of Speech" but they only believe in "Freedom of MY Speech, not yours."

And for those who want to think the Naval Jack is the symbol of the Confederacy and don't respect its history, just remember what Wil says, "The last flag the Confederacy flew was White."

True about the Confederate Cemetery, and you better believe the Arsenal is serious about being respectful there. (Old Sarge and I will be just down the road a piece at the National Cemetery)

What really amazes me is that Forreston has what? Maybe 30 kids at the high school?
