These tips on the proper way to display the American flag come from the December 1969 Commonwealth of Massachusetts Veteran Services' Newsletter. This item was one of many Veteran Services' Newsletters recently repaired in the library's preservation lab. Metal staples were removed from each newsletter to prevent rust and a custom acid-free enclosure was built to protect the newsletters into the future.
