i know nothing about military protocol but why is cheney the one handing mrs. ford the flag? is this proper military etiquette? i have seen the flag folded and handed to loved ones before- is he techinically allowed to do this? i realize he does what he wants now that he is open about running the show. i just didn't know if this was a snub to the ford family- being that gerald was a navy man and cheney never served a day.
