Rep. Duncan Hunter, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan with the Marine Corps, today called on the President to order flags to be flown at half staff in honor of the service members killed in Chattanooga, TN.  Hunter’s statement follows:

“Five service members were killed on American soil, and  the idea that the Commander in Chief is so far unwilling to lower flags in their honor is unconscionable.  The flag and all it represents is sacred to our military, and the President must know that lowering the flag is a signal of honor and respect.  The President should make this call immediately.”
