USPS: Flag notice – Monday, Nov. 11, is Veterans Day

Rattaiah Ghanta, an Austin, TX, postal support employee, displays a POW-MIA flag recently.

Flag notice. Monday, Nov. 11, is Veterans Day, one of six days each year that Postal Service facilities are required to fly the POW-MIA flag.

Because Veterans Day is a designated USPS holiday, facilities should raise the POW-MIA flag on the last business day before the holiday.

The flag honors the sacrifices made by members of the armed forces held as prisoners of war or listed as missing in action.

The POW-MIA flag must fly below the U.S. flag.

For more information, refer to the Postal Service’s Administrative Support Manual, which explains the organizations guidelines on U.S. flag display and maintenance, as well as the requirements for displaying the POW-MIA flag.
