Thank you for your serviceThank you for your service Marine, I have a Flag given to me by my grandfather that has 48 stars. I wanted it preserved and displayed in my "man cave" along with all my other memorabilia of my days in S.E. Asia and other military "stuff". What I discovered is, a flag that has sentimental and historical value can be displayed following the rules of etiquette of a new flag.... ...By doing so, you also show honor to those that served under that particular flag. My answer to your question: It is not disrespectful if done with pride. So, carry on Marine, Semper Fi.
