The flag in Susan's case is a 49-star flag that once flew over the Capitol in Washington, D.C. then later sent to Susan's father to fly over the US Federal Bldg in Lafayette, Louisiana when it was dedicated in the spring of 1960.  Susan's father was the building manager for the General Services Administration and his office was housed in that building. (Alaska had become the 49th state in 1959 and Hawaii was just around the corner as the 50th state).  Susan's father flew that same flag from the fascia board on the house the day Matt returned to Lafayette after the Gulf War - a day that called for celebration in the Adams family complete with patriotic music, decorations, and yellow ribbons tied to every tree in the yard.
