From the Desk of the Department Adjutant

It has come to the attention of the Department of Florida VFW, that individuals or members are cutting out the stars on retired American Flags and distributing them with patriotic messages. While we understand that the intention maybe to further patriotism, this act of cutting the stars is in violation of the Federal Flag Code and must be stopped immediately. Please pass this information to your members and members of your auxiliaries.
