    Without getting into any type of discussion, just a simple yes or no.

    Does anyone put an American flag on their home on Veterans Day, July 4th, Memorial Day etc?

    Again, the instructions are simple. Just write “Yes” or “No”.

    I don’t always remember to.

    When I do, on Memorial day and July 4th.

    It’s a little hakoras hatov to the medina shel chesed.

    No – I am Canadian. Canadians are not as outwardly patriotic as Americans and not many display flags at any time. The only time you see a few is on July 1 – Canada Day (our version of July 4). However, most Canadians wear red poppies (sold by the veterans from the Canadian Legion – our version of VFW) throughout early November until November 11. I just watched the Remembrance Day service from Ottawa – held on the grounds of the capital. After the service and the laying of all of the wreaths, the veterans and the rest of the public line up and place their poppies on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

    If I had a flag, I would display it. I am very grateful for being born in America, and I am grateful to the veterans and soldiers who fought to protect the freedom that helps to make my life so good.

    This week, a boy from my town was killed in Afghanistan.

    45 years ago, my father died of a service-related illness that he acquired during WWII. He answered the call to help defeat the forces of true evil in the world, as did a very high percentage of Jewish-American men who were eligible for the armed services at that time. Today, I am wearing his dogtags, and on the dogtag chain, there is a small mezuzah (government issue). In one of the corners of the dogtag, there is an H, for Hebrew.

    It may be the galut, and it may be flawed, but the USA is among the most wonderful countries in the world, and has been very good to its Jews.

    Bless the USA and all its defenders and veterans. May Hashem give wisdom to its leaders, whether we like them or not.

    Yes we are certainly allowed to have sholom with neighbors and we should have hakoras hatov to our medina shel chesed.

    No.

    Now that you mention it, excellent idea. Why do I not see any of my neighbors, Jewish and other, put out a flag?

    Hmmm… Should I start the trend next 4th?

    Question: Is displaying the American flag considered a gentile ideal?

    And when that wicked Supreme Court permitted burning an American flag and said you cannot make a law against it, it was a desecration of America.

    We hang out the flag from this shul on the Fourth of July.

    I dont, most people in our community dont.

    The only reason I would place a flag is so that there shouldnt be a Chilul Hashem, Other than that why is a flag significant?

    Rabbi Avigdor Miller once said by a shuir, that each Yid should be put a flag, since the Americans are the ones that accepted us, we should have at least some Hakores Hatov and show that we love the country.

    I never quite understood why we should show Hakoros Hatov to America for treating us like all other human beings. America has never been eager to accept Jewish immigrants and they aren’t doing us a favor by giving us equal rights- they just aren’t being Anti Semitic animals. It’s like telling the weak kids in a class that they owe the strong kids Hakaros Hatov for not beating them up for no reason.

    “I never quite understood why we should show Hakoros Hatov to America for treating us like all other human beings.”

    Because much of the rest of the world doesn’t treat other human beings like human beings.
