One of the great traditions I miss from living on a military installation was hearing the bugle playing “Colors” over the post PA system at the end of the day, normally around 1700 hours (5pm).
We taught our daughters, Aubrey and Austen, that when the music came on to show respect and stop.
If you’ve ever been on a military installation you know that traffic stops, the entire base comes to a standstill.
It’s the right thing to do to pay respect as the flag is lowered. There’s something about tradition that progressive socialists do not like, whether it’s regard, respect or honor.
