I recently visited several cemeteries as part of my annual trek to MC & western ND on Memorial weekend. Some of the cemeteries had the veterans graves flags on them as early as Friday while some were getting put on Saturday and I was told by others that they would be put on Memorial Day morning. A discussion arose when they should be put on the graves. Some thought they should be put on the vets graves before the Memorial weekend as a lot of people like myself visit before the actual Memorial Day. Another was that the flag cannot be displayed in the dark so should not be put on the graves until sunup and taken down at sundown that same day. In MC they were and as far as I can remember at least on Saturday and this year on Friday. Does anyone know the know the proper etiquette for this situation?
