The military recognition banners honor Glendale residents, or their immediate family members, who are serving the military in Iraq and Afghanistan. Banners also pay tribute to the city’s Bravo Company 1st Battalion 160th Infantry Division — based at the Glendale National Guard Armory — and fallen Glendale troops, whose banners are marked with a gold star.

Aram Barsoumian wrote that Glendale has become "non-American" for not flying the U.S. flag at half-staff for a fallen police officer when some other Southern California cities did ("Turnabout is fair play when it comes to flag," May 10). Since when is it non-American to follow the rules? Living under rules IS American. The U.S. flag is our national symbol, with nationwide customs and rules for display set forth in the U.S. Flag Code, which is federal law. The code does not authorize local officials to lower the U.S. flag for local observances.

On May 5, 1886, businesses were closed, flags were lowered to half-staff, and people decorated soldiers' graves in Waterloo, N.Y. That was the beginning of Memorial Day, when America honors its war dead. Originally, it honored military personnel who died in the Civil War, then it came to include those who died in the Spanish American War, World Wars I and II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War. And now, we also honor those who have died in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The catastrophic mutilation of the prized Moreton Bay fig tree in La Crescenta is the latest in a series of debacles that have given rise to a reawakening in our community — a renewed and blistering realization that our heritage and aesthetic values remain completely vulnerable within unincorporated L.A. County. On the day of yet another weekend demolition, galvanized Crescenta Valley residents showed up in droves and succeeded in preserving what was left of the mangled tree ("Owner stops chopping," Nov. 22)

I always like to play a game where I compare an elected official's website to their actions once they take office. Your Oct. 13 article "Gatto and Ramani go into detail" gave this voter the ability to compare newly elected Assemblyman Mike Gatto's record to his rhetoric. Gatto campaigned on fiscal responsibility, things like pension reform and establishing a Rainy Day Fund (or savings account) for the state. I am pleasantly surprised that he has delivered on these promises, and in only a few months in office.

GLENDALE — Mike Boyd felt helpless when he watched news reports of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. “I would look at the news every day and see kid, after kid, after kid dying,” Boyd said. “I felt so much for our U.S. troops who were dying.” Instead of wondering what he could do to help the troops, Boyd went into action. He founded a series of “American Soldier Thank You” concerts to help raise funds for military personnel. “It was something I needed to do for them, knowing all the things they have done for us,” said Boyd, the founder of Burbank-based Singboy Productions.

GLENDALE — For 17 months, Marine Col. James McGinley has been in the trenches of a dangerous and unpopular Iraq war, where violence has ebbed and flowed. But throughout McGinley’s tenure, the Glendale resident’s resolve for Operation Iraqi Freedom has been strengthened by a mission he says is of great importance. “A stable and prosperous Iraq will act as a calming anchor point for the rest of the Middle East,” McGinley said from his Baghdad base Friday.

Vigil in ?Mayberry? a night to remember On Wednesday night I met many new friends and saw several old ones. We gathered at Honolulu Avenue and Ocean View Boulevard as the sun was setting to light candles in memory of the nearly 4,000 U.S. military personnel who?ve lost their lives in Iraq and to honor those currently serving. Also honored were the countless Iraqis who?ve died or been rendered refugees. The Montrose Peace Vigil group, which holds a peaceful demonstration against the Iraq war each Friday evening here on this corner, hosted the event.

CITY HALL — Local service men and women serving in Iraq and Afghanistan were sent a clear message of support Tuesday as city officials and family members dedicated the first batch of military recognition banners along Glendale Avenue. Of the 19 banners already installed, five display the names of active-duty military personnel who live, or have immediate family members, in Glendale. Six more feature the names of local troops who died while serving. The rest of the banners give a general thanks to all military personnel and to the Bravo Company 1st Battalion 160th Infantry, which is stationed out the Glendale armory.
