No respect shown for our flag at parade

To the Editor:

What a shame.

At the 2014 Milford Labor Day parade, men and women sat as the flag was paraded by veterans and patriotic groups. Men kept their hats and caps on.

No respect for the flag.

What a huge contrast with the behavior of citizens of Cheyenne, WY, at their Frontier Days parade. With each flag that passed, all – men, women and children – stood and showed proper respect. There was a lot of bobbing up and down, but the people were proud to do it and show their love and respect for the beloved symbol of our country.

As a group, Milford parade watchers failed miserably.
