Veteran's Day 2015

Thank you 


This is news to me.
Veteran graves with no US Flags on them on Veteran's Day. 
Concord, Massachusetts, for example, removes the flags for a Veteran's Day burning ceremony. Burning old flags is per the US Flag Code. Flying a US Flag on Veteran's Day is also in the US Flag Code.
US Senate 2008, US Flag Code

I haven't been around cemeteries on Veteran's Day. The old cemetery nearby flies the US Flag 24/7/365. Thus, in my world, my mind believes on Veteran's Day a flag will be on veteran's graves, just like Memorial Day, when new flags, I thought, replace the old ones that are later burned.
