	First let me say that I am sorry you or anyone else might have
been offended as to the placement of Her Majesties's Banner.   When
Aislyn and I were trying to find a place for it we wondered whether or
not we really should.  I was a USMC wife and understand the sacrifice
made by all the members of our armed forces and their families.  We
simply had no other place to place the banner.  I am sorry it offend you
it wasn't intentional nor meant to be disrespectful.
