We've seen a lot of pettiness and hate directed at President Donald Trump over the past 5 years, but this is just beyond petty.

Department Commander Jeff Nelson: “As we grew up, we took it for granted that the flag was always in the classroom. In today’s schools, some of those traditions and customs that we’ve had in the past have been neglected, although not intentionally."
We’ve got a special Memorial Day show coming up for you on Monday’s Montana Talks. Our friend George Blackard is not only a Navy veteran, he’s also the statewide Vice Commander for the American Legion in Montana. Tune in as he guest hosts our special show.
