According to the United States Department of Veteran Affairs, a military burial flag is provided to a deceased veteran in order to honor the memory of his service to the country. Below is the stated United States Department of Veterans Affairs criteria for receiving a military burial flag.

"VA will furnish a burial flag for memorialization for an other than dishonorably discharged:

    Veteran who served during wartime

    Veteran who died on active duty after May 27, 1941

    Veteran who served after January 31, 1955

Peacetime Veteran who was discharged or released before June 27, 1950 after serving at least one enlistment, or for a disability incurred or aggravated in line of duty

Certain persons who served in the organized military forces of the Commonwealth of the Philippines while in service of the U.S. Armed Forces and who died on or after April 25, 1951

Certain former members of the Selected Reserves"

As a retired SNCO I will not let my flag be used as a cheap political stunt to pander votes for the 2020 election.

Thank you. Happy Fathers day...
