With Veterans Day approaching, on Nov. 11, I have been trying to get the U.S. Postal Service to change its policy of flying the prisoner of war/missing in action flag from the required six days a year to every day. It should be flown each day under the American flag to show respect for veterans still missing.

 I have addressed this issue with Rhode Island elected officials, but it has fallen on deaf ears. I am asking those who agree with my concerns to please reach out to their elected officials to address this issue.
