Rob and group,
To answer your question concerning the flying of the colors with the death
of a VP.
I received this nice pamphlet "Let's be RIGHT on Flag Etiquette"
distributed by The American Legion. It explains the Flag Code in detail.
It contains information that I was not aware of. Back to the answer.
>From the Flag Code, Section 175 Position and manner of display, subsection
(m). This is a long section so I only wrote the portions of sentences that
answers the question.
... The flag will be flown at half staff ... from the day of death until
internment of an ... former Vice President ...
To receive this pamphlet simply contact your local American Legion.
