Rep. Nuovo of Middlebury explained her vote as follows:

"Mr. Speaker:

This bill does not include a flag for all veterans, those who fought and suffered and came home, are they not important also?"

Rep. Suchmann of Chester explained his vote as follows:

"Mr. Speaker:

It is not within our power to find the missing or return the dead. If this special flag brings one scintilla of comfort to their anguished families, I, for one, cannot bring myself to deny their wishes."
