Fly flags at half-staff every day for soldiers

If the federal, state and county governments are going to lower the flags for a week out of respect for the three dead in the Boston Marathon terror attack, then I believe we should fly the flag at half-staff every day out of respect for the soldiers who are dying every day defending our county.

Until every soldier is safely out of Afghanistan, I say let the nation and the world know that we the people of the United States of America are in mourning for our young men and women who willingly gave their lives defending our freedom.
