Congressman Pete King Attends Massapequa American Legion Flag Retirement Ceremony

Recently I had the privilege of attending the annual Flag Retirement Ceremony at the Massapequa American Legion Hall. In this ceremony, old and tattered flags are disposed of with respect and dignity. The American flag is the symbol of our nation's unity and greatness. It is also the banner of the brave men and women of our Armed Forces who have always answered their nation's call and defended us in battle. True Americans honor and salute this flag. It was particularly meaningful and reassuring to be present at this beautiful ceremony at a time when the likes of Colin Kaepernick refuse to stand for the National Anthem which honors our flag and all that it represents. Let me thank the American Legion, particularly Massapequa Post 1066 and Commander Jack Ryan, for doing so much to preserve American patriotism. God Bless America.

In another wave of police shootings, six police officers were shot last night in Pennsylvania and Florida. Both officers in the Florida shooting have died from their wounds. These latest shootings add to the upsurge in violence against the men and women in blue which has seen a 60% increase in gun murders of police officers in just the past 18 months.

These officers are the people who put their lives on the line for us every day. All too often they are maliciously attacked by liberal rags such as the New York Times and too many politically correct politicians. But these cops continue to do their job no matter what. They deserve the full support, gratitude and thanks of all good people. Blue Lives Do Matter!
