This week the country commemorates its freedom and independence as a nation with the celebration of Independence Day. The American flag is commonly displayed on Independence Day. At Arlington National Cemetery, the two flagpoles on the grounds, the Woodhull Memorial flagpole and the Arlington House flagpole (shown here), fly flags at half-staff, commencing a half hour before the first burial service of the day. They remain at half-staff until a half hour after the last service.
