Every American needs a flag!
… and so do I.
I’ve sent a letter to Senator Tom Carper with a Flag Request, and it took only about a week to get one. If I had paid another $4.05 then they would have also flown my flag in front of the Capitol, but I was too cheap for this service.
As you can see I asked them for the largest flag they have. That is 5′ x 8′ or roughly 2.5m x 1.5m. You can imagine that I didn’t think about the size before I ordered it. It might well be that my American Flag is now larger than my German flag… ;-).
Almost one month ago I also sent an email to John Kowalko, our Delaware State Representative from Newark. He didn’t answer so far, so I guess I won’t get a Delaware State flag. Maybe I should have just walked over, he lives just 0.2 miles away from where I am.
