Letter to the Editor: Show More Respect to the U.S. Flag

John G. O’Sullivan, Councilman South Brunswick Township

Attending the Princeton Memorial Day weekend parade was truly a great part of the American tradition. Watching our veterans, active duty personnel, boy and girl scouts, Revolutionary War re-enactors and members of other organizations pass by was great.  

However, as a veteran, I became very disturbed about the lack of respect shown to the American flags carried by the color guards as they passed in front of people sitting in chairs, sitting on the curbs, leaning against cars or just standing there.  

I hope this letter will be a reminder to our citizens, young and old, to get out of the chairs, get up from the curbs, quit leaning.  Stand at attention and place your right hand over your heart when the flag passes by.

Please, from this time forward, let us all show the American flag the respect that it is due.

OSullivan is like Nero....South Brunswick is going down in flames while he fiddles away on issues that make no sense. This is one of the most incoherent letters to the editor I have ever read. Is he is in his right mind? In my opinion...he needs to resign form the town council.... he gives Republicans and conservatives a bad name.
