Montgomery County took down the POW/MIA flag and replaced it with the LGBT rainbow fag- err flag. Thankfully, there was a public outcry.
I wasn't happy about it at all because the park is supposed to be a veterans park. People died. Now they took it down and put another flag up.

Council member Evan Glass, the council's first LGBTQ member, assured that more ringlets would be added to the flag pole to make room for both flags.
The flag post was only able to accommodate one flag, and when we learned of that, we are quickly, the county government, is quickly changing it. So we're adding more ringlets so that by tomorrow morning both flags will be raised.
If they want to put the other flag underneath, they could put it underneath, but the POW flag should be flying there.

Now both are up. It really begs the question if the MIA flag would've flown at all if there was no public outcry.
The rainbow flag will fly during the month; the POW flag will remain permanently.
