Bridge Crew Ordered to Remove U.S. Flags From Alaska National Park

UPDATE: The National Park Service released a statement calling the accusations false.

“At no time did an NPS official seek to ban the American flag from the project site or associated vehicles,” the statement said. “The NPS neither administers the bridge project contract, nor has the authority to enforce terms or policies related to the contract or contractors performing the work.”

The statement continued: “The American flag can be seen at various locations within Denali National Park – at park facilities and campsites, on public and private vehicles, and at employee residences – and we welcome its display this Memorial Day weekend and every day.”

DEVELOPING STORY: Sen Dan Sullivan (R-AK) is demanding answers from the National Park Service after a bridge crew was ordered to remove an American flag in a national park in Alaska.

The crew, working in Denali National Park, was told by the park superintendent to remove Old Glory.

“The trucks are flying these American flags, about a foot atop the trucks, about three-foot by four-foot flags, and they said they don’t want this,” the contractor told Alaska Watchman, a conservative news organization. “They’re saying it isn’t conducive and it doesn’t fit the park experience.”

“Here I am in a national park, and we’re being told we can’t fly the American flag,” the contractor told the Watchman. “I understand there are rules for contractors working in the national parks, but you wouldn’t think flying the American flag would be part of those rules.”

Sullivan called the superintendent’s decision an outrage.

“This is an outrage – particularly in the lead-up to our most solemn national holiday, Memorial Day, a time when Americans come together to honor those that gave their lives in service to our nation, while wearing our country’s flag,” Sullivan wrote. “The American flag, especially on Memorial Day weekend, should be celebrated, not censored by federal government employees.”
