D.C. flag AWOL at military ceremony
D.C. residents Tomi Rucker and Michael Boyd beamed with pride as their son walked out for his basic-training commencement from the Great Lakes Naval Station in Illinois. One by one, flags were presented to denote the home states of the recruits, eliciting cheers from pockets of supporters. But Jonathan M. Rucker and his parents saw no flag bearer with the distinctive flag of the District, its three red stars and two red bars on a white background.

Tomi Rucker, a Washington, D.C. Navy mom, says she was "saddened" when the D.C. flag was not a part of her son's boot camp graduation, particularly because the flags of the other recruits' states were. She came to 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. (Barbara L. Salisbury/The Washington Times)
