Flags are flown at half-mast only until noon on Memorial Day. I'm guessing this is common knowledge that somehow escaped me until this year. There's some nice symbolism here. First, the flag is flown at half-mast in tribute to fallen soldiers. It's then raised as sign of the continuing life of the nation, and a reminder to honor the fallen by acting honorably.
McKnight's Long-Term Care News will observe Memorial Day on Monday, May 27. There will not be a Daily Update on Monday and the office will be closed. The Daily Update will resume on Tuesday, May 28.
