Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care. – Theodore Roosevelt

Montana VA: Flying a Flag

Aaron Flint over at Montana’s leading conservative blog “The Flint Report” posted a column last week titled, “Vets Outraged as VA Flies LGBT Flag at Fort Harrison.” The column was about a LGBT (Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transgender) pride flag being flown at the Fort Harrison Veterans Regional Office and Medical Center near Helena, Montana.

You can read Flint’s column HERE.

Flint was able to interview the VA Montana Health Care System director Johnny Ginnity who told him a “diversity committee installed the new flagpole” where the flag was being flown. He also said it was a mandate. As far as I can tell from the interview, the LGBT flag was not flown in place of the American flag, Montana flag, or the POW/MIA flag.

I don’t think any animals were harmed in constructing the flagpole, either.

Flint also wrote that Ginnity said the flagpole may also be used to celebrate Asian American Pacific Islander month, black history month, breast cancer awareness, etc. By the way, Ginnity said that June was LGBT Pride Month.
