She's a Grand Old Flag
We salute Old Glory. Long may she wave over America's shores, a beacon of Liberty and Freedom to all of us. Listen, and she will tell you a story of the struggles and bloodshed that have kept this country free. She will tell you about the men and women that gave all in defense of the light of freedom found in her stars and stripes. She will tell you of sacrifice, deprivation and loneliness as soldiers, far from home, missed their families in only the way a soldier can. She truly is a Grand Old Flag and we are honored to find her in many places around our homestead. Like Frank said in a recent comment, "Did I tell you I love my flag?
It flies everyday, 365, 24/7. Rain or shine. It's just like our
soldiers, it's there everyday. Rain or shine." We thought we would share her with you so that she might inspire you as well.
Do you have a flag flying? What are you waiting for? Don't wait until it is too late.
