    Either those in Trion only show honor to those servicemen that are christian, or they dishonor all of those who weren’t christian by slapping their flag over on a cross shaped divot.
    Either way. It shows disrespect to those who are gone that weren’t of that faith, or those of the sects of that faith that reject the symbol of the cross.
    Trion shall never have my flag.
