What is the protocol for a flag of an injured soldier?


Answer by  brittann (200)

The flag for an injured soldier is folded like a flag that is given to a fallen soldier. The flag is given to the soldier to keep as a symbol of his courage while the flag for a fallen soldier is buried with the soldier that was lost during the war.

The military presents flags to the next-of-kin of a fallen soldier. The ceremony varies a little from one service to another, but it is extremely dignified to honor the solider and family. Injured soldiers do not receive flags.

Flag is a identy of a country which has some protocol in different situation. When somebody is killed or injured in the Department of National Defence the flag must be half-mast for showing respect and mourning for them.

I do not believe that an injured soldier receives a flag. The flag is given to the family of a fallen soldier but not one who has been injured.


Answer by  cmaopep (239)

If a soldier is merely injured I don't believe there is any ceremony or protocol involving a flag that would be required or necessary. If he was dead, however, that would be a different matter entirely. Although, it may be different in countries other than the US although I think you were just trying to ask a tricksy question =)

I'm not sure what the protocol for a flag of an injured soldier is, but I think they fold a flag into a triangle and give it to his/her family.
