Supervisor Asks Woman To Take Down American Flag

Is it okay to show your patriotism at the office?

For one Arlington woman, the answer was "no" after she hung an American flag in her office just before the Memorial Day weekend.

Debbie McLucas is one of four hospital supervisors at Kindred Hospital in Mansfield. Last week, she hung a three-by-five foot American flag in the office she shares with the other supervisors.

When McLucas came to work Friday, her boss told her another supervisor had found her flag offensive. "I was just totally speechless. I was like, 'You're kidding me,'" McLucas said.

Memorial Day is an important event to remember by everyone. I question the reasoning on the supervisor who was offended by the flag.

Being told that a flag pole outside of the hospital is sufficient enough is ridiculous. I wonder if a patient who wanted an American flag in his/her hospital room would get denied.

In my office, there are American flags everywhere, and we even got a huge one mounted on the wall on our trading floor.
