The flag that flies above the nations’ capital, above every government building, in every National Cemetery, and in front of thousands upon thousands of homes isn’t just a colorful piece of cloth. It’s a symbol of who we are, where we’ve been, and what makes us great.
On this one day of the year, we honor those who have sacrificed for our freedom by placing the symbol of what they fought for on each and every grave in every National Cemetery across the nation. How can this sight not touch your heart?
Everyday men and women, not superstars or hero’s, continue to serve our country. Although, many of these people become hero’s by their unselfish acts of valor in the face of unimaginable circumstances to those of us left at home. A great number of these acts are never known or publically acknowledged because it’s simply ‘what they do.’ It’s their job.
To all the people who have walked in harms’ way so that I can walk without fear, I salute you!
I’m so very proud of him, my uncles, brother, niece, nephews, as well as my wonderful husband (who served in Vietnam plus Desert Storm) and is now a Retired Marine.
Love you one and all!
