instead of worrying about the flag being at half mast or not

why don't we concentrate on getting our connecticut women and men HOME who are serving in this UNJUST war based on LIES? well let's worry about getting ALL of our people home no matter what state or territory they are from (don't misunderstand me, i DO think we should honor ALL of our war(s) dead and wounded)

By Susan Haigh, Associated Press Writer January 25, 2006
HARTFORD, Conn. --A group of state lawmakers wants to make it clear that the governor can order the U.S. flag lowered when a Connecticut service member dies overseas.
Gov. M. Jodi Rell has called for only the state flag to be lowered to half-staff for the 27 Connecticut soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.
According to the national American Legion, the federal code for flag etiquette allows a governor to order the U.S. flag lowered.
But lawmakers and Rell's office say the rule is vague and they welcome a proposed state law that clarifies it........
