Superior, NE – The Brodstone Foundation is proud to announce the success of its recent First Annual Raise to Remember flag exchange event, held on May 24th at Brodstone Healthcare.

The event focused on honoring veterans and promoting proper American flag etiquette within the community. Members of the Sons of the American Legion Squadron 103, Randy Rhoads and Troy Scott, generously presented over 50 flags to community members.

“We are incredibly grateful to the Sons of the American Legion for their partnership in this initiative,” said Heather Erickson, Senior Director of Development at Brodstone Healthcare. “Their dedication to our veterans and our nation’s flag is truly inspiring.”

Proper American Flag Etiquette

The American flag is a powerful symbol of our nation's history and values. To ensure its respect, it’s important to follow some basic guidelines:

  • The flag should be displayed only during daylight hours, unless properly illuminated at night.
  • The flag should be kept clean and free of damage.
  • When raising the flag, it should be hoisted briskly and lowered ceremoniously.
  • The flag should never touch the ground.
  • When not in use, the flag should be folded properly and stored in a respectful manner.

The Brodstone Foundation encourages everyone to learn more about proper flag etiquette and display the American flag with pride. The partnership plans to continue this tradition annually on Memorial Weekend.
