Well, y'all had some good guesses out there about the flag on my dining room table..but I'm afraid the answer is much less important that that.
1 - We have a flagpole in front of our house
2 - We do not have that flagpole lit at night
3 - Subvet brings in the flag at sundown and folds it correctly (this is how ALL American Flags are to be folded, not just funeral flags), then lays it on the dining room table till morning when he replaces the flag on the pole.
4 - I work nights and keep mostly to my night schedule when off work.
6 - All my pictures are therefore taken in the dead of night, so any that show my dining room table will show the flag.
You were mostly right though. We fly our flag out of Patriotism to our country and in honor of all members of the US Military, past, present and future.
Thanks for all the great guesses!
