It comes down to opinion and perception. In your OP its disrespectful. in mine its not. Thats it. Next.
The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery. It should never be festooned, drawn back, nor up, in folds, but always allowed to fall free.

Looks like someone's prediction was not only wrong but so wrong that people not only didn't burn their flags they didn't pay attention of Vietnam veterans day either. LOL

Huh, this is a holiday? Don't we have this kind of stuff covered already with Memorial Day & Veterans Day?
Either way, nobody's going to notice. Both the holiday lost in a sea of them, or the faux outrage the OP's so bent on seeing.
We are drawn here together in the sight of God to pay our last respects to this symbol of our great nation, "America", the land of the free and the home of the brave.
The US Flag Code reads; "The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning."
