Memorial Day honors those who gave their lives for this country. But in driving four miles through Glendale there were only three Stars and Stripes flying from the houses — yes, just three! This is a poor display on such a day. So where were the flags? Maybe you could remind people that June 14 is Flag Day, and that July 4 is Independence Day, so they have time to go to the store and buy a 3-by-5-foot flag to be flown on these two days. All the action on such a day should not be limited to the TV. FRANK AND OLIVE BUNKELL Glendale Teachers union made poor choice Much has been spoken lately about the candlelight vigil staged by the Glendale Teachers Assn.

Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE -- A 17-year-old student, a fire chief and a World War II veteran -- these men span the spectrum of age and experience but they have all proven themselves as patriots. The Glendale Chamber of Commerce celebrated locals who uphold the ideals represented by the Stars and Stripes at its 10th annual Flag Day Luncheon on Wednesday. The Patriot of the Year award went to Glendale Fire Chief Richard Hinz. The department veteran received a standing ovation from the crowd gathered in the flag-filled Hilton Glendale banquet room.

You have published a number of well-written letters by citizens explaining that the Stars and Stripes, our Union flag is should only be flown at half staff for American events, or to recognize American dead. On June 5, you published a long, and somewhat rambling letter that was a real shocker. Not only did the writer think it all right to hoist the Stars and Stripes up and down for various non-American events but the writer was a Glendale school teacher!

Alex Coolman GLENDALE -- Some city streets are sporting stars and stripes in honor of flag week, which begins Sunday. The city on Friday put up American flags in preexisting brackets on posts along Central Avenue and Broadway in honor of flag week. The week, which was noted Tuesday in a proclamation by Mayor Gus Gomez, runs from Sunday through June 16. The proclamation also recognized June 14 as Flag Day. Flags were installed Friday because city staff would not be available to put them up Sunday.

Judy Seckler Mark Keppel Elementary School kindergarten teachers gave their students a taste of America through an art project made of paper-link chains. When it was all assembled, 59 students had their version of Old Glory proudly displayed in the kindergarten wing of the school. Each child learned what the stars stood for and how many stripes had to be counted in celebration of Flag Day. Flag Day commemorates the day in 1777 when the Continental Congress adopted the Stars and Stripes as the official flag of the United States.

Now that our country's flag has been flown at half staff over Glendale City Hall to commemorate the Armenian Genocide on April 24, despite many pros and cons toward the display, it would be an amiable and patriotic gesture toward our country if residents all ethnic groups would display our flag on our treasured holidays -- Memorial Day, Presidents Day, Flag Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day and Veterans Day.

How silently and stalwart Old Glory flies./ I watched so proudly with tears in my eyes./ What a message it carries unfurling in the breeze,/ Gently telling its story bringing men to their knees./ In language so priceless, it speaks loud and clear./ It pointedly states its mission erasing all fear./ Ponder its meaning ... ponder its cost./ Know the red, white and blue means that all is not lost./ The light of the sun's rays illumines its dignity bright.

Hear, hear, or should I say where, where to the sentiments shared by the Bunkells over the sparse display of American flags on Memorial Day ("Not enough Stars and Stripes flown," June 4). While taking our annual Memorial Day drive, it was both noticeable and discouraging to witness the lack of stars and stripes waving proudly from each home. Let's step it up, Glendale, and honor both our country and the brave men and women who put their lives in harms way by waving our American flag.

GLENDALE — In his quest to reach stardom and accomplish championship aspirations in the world of mixed martial arts, Glendale fighter Karen Darebedyan continued his ascension on Saturday evening in impressive style.

Union needs lesson in shared sacrifice One wonders what planet the members of the Glendale Police Officers Assn. have been living on recently (“Police union won’t budge,” Weekend). Their decision to not consider reopening talks on their contract is incomprehensible to say the least. I wonder if they’ve ever heard of the words “shared sacrifice.” Apparently not. JOHN STEELE Glendale   Disappointed with the police union As a longtime admirer of the Glendale police force, I was disappointed to read in the Weekend edition of the Glendale News-Press that the Glendale Police Officers Assn.

After the Greyhound bus stopped in El Paso, a tumbleweed blew past me on a hot, windy day as I was met by a military recruiter. He escorted me and a group of other young men and women to a station, where we all [underwent] a complete medical, physical and mental evaluation. We were treated with a serious and firm respect in manner. I was standing in line with a group of about 20 other young high school-aged teens. For enlistment into the military service, as we entered the last room, we all took an oath and were sworn into the Air Force, then we all shook hands and parted to go our separate ways.

Thanks from a flag fan and an American veteran The guy down the street has American flags in his house. As you walk in, you see the American flag to the left on the wall, in a picture with a sailboat. Next to the surfboards, skateboards and bikes, you see red, white and blue, with stars and stripes that intertwine into a kaleidoscope of patriotic all-Americanism. At the same time, he patiently waits for all occasions, spelled out in perfect order to the American flag code, to display the American flag outside his door to show the honor and respect he truly feels in his all-American heart.

Gary Moskowitz Local residents can show their support of commissioning a new ship named for the city of Glendale simply by writing a letter. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Glendale) spoke to City Council members Tuesday about his proposal to Secretary of the Navy Gordon England to commission another ship with Glendale's name, but said his proposal needs the support of the Glendale community to succeed. "We want to know the city is behind this effort. The more we can show that this city is involved and active, the better," Schiff said.
