Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes-Norton, right, listens as Tomi Rucker, a Washington, D.C. Navy mom, talks about how she and her husband were saddened by the fact that the D.C. flag was not a part of her son's Navy boot camp graduation, when flags from the other states with graduates were present. Ms. Rucker joined the D.C. officials at the D.C. World War I Memorial on Monday, Nov. 12, 2012 to talk about the inconsistent flying of the D.C. flag at military graduations. Holmes-Norton is calling upon to president to require that the D.C. flag be flown at military functions where the flags of all 50 states are flown. (Barbara L. Salisbury/The Washington Times)
