To The Editor:

As quick as I have been in the past to point out matters with which I disagree or find fault with, let me also air an instance with which I do agree, and which I believe should be mentioned publicly: to wit, the POW/MIA flag now flying from the flag pole of the Massena Post Office.

Somewhat belatedly I suppose, just this past week I raised my eyes to our national emblem flying high on that pole and also saw - about midway up the pole - a smaller, somber, ensign bearing the promise that “We Will Not Forget.”

In the past I had mentioned the absence of the black flag from the flag pole in spite of federal regulations requiring that it be displayed and so, despite its diminutive size, and relatively low placement, I salute the local postal powers for bringing our staff into regulatory and moral compliance.
