It seems Hermiston was the only city in Eastern Oregon that did not display the United States Flag on July 4 because it fell on a Sunday.

Our boys overseas do not get Sundays off and our men and women still die on Sundays.

This showed disrespect for our Nation and for those who fought and died for us and those who still fight and die.
