Old Glory

The American flag, Old Glory, standing tall and flying free over American soil for 228 years is the symbol of our beloved country. It is recognized from near and afar, and many lives have been lost defending it ~ Jeff Miller

Formally known as Decoration Day, today, and yearly on the final Monday in May, we celebrate Memorial Day and remember all the men and women who died while serving in the armed forces.

Week #22 - LIFE'S simple pleasures - the American Flag

We see the national flag of the United States of America on public buildings and private homes all across our country.  It is a powerful symbol of Americanism.  And is known as Old Glory, Stars & Stripes and the Star Spangled Banner.

Thank you to all the brave men and women who served our country... and an even greater thanks to their family members.

And I’m proud to be an American,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me
... Lee Greenwood
