This is something you will never regret. I've stood line in the pouring rain and never regretted a minute of it.I took the lead of DiamondRed and so many others of you and joined PGR today, too. Although not a veteran, as a high school teacher I have many former students in branches in the military, and I support, wholeheartedly, what they do everyday for us.
If this is one small way I can show respect for those that serve, it would seem silly not to participate.
Thanks for the impetus to get me started.

Another +1. I view this as a total lack of respect for the mission and the family.... My only bad experiences (unfortunately it's happened more than once) have been when guys treat missions like social gatherings and chit chat & joke around while standing the flag line.
Me, too. I have vowed that the next time it happens, I will quietly and respectfully remind those involved why we are there (this is a good example of the sentiment expressed in my sig).Another +1. I view this as a total lack of respect for the mission and the family.
