We get to meet ed Asner's character when his grandson from New York is sent to spend the Summer with him because he needs to have some discipline in his life. Bart is a regular guy in a small town, and everyone knows him and his V. F. W. buddies know him best and respect him as a fellow soldier who retired with honor to continue his life in his home town. Bart teaches his grandson about how to be a man to take responsibility, to be respectful of others. When Ed Asner's funeral is taking place his daughter is given the folded flag by a Sergent Major of the Marine Corps. Ed Asner was a colonel in his Marine days, so military etiquette requires that someone of similar rank or higher present the flag to the family. It should have been a Colonel or General that did this.
