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.

Until next time – Fern

My Salute

Hello Everybody, Frank here.

This is my salute to all the fine men and women that have served their country in the Armed Forces.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Without your time, effort and sacrifice, we would not enjoy the riches that we have in this beautiful country.

You come from the finest stock, with a history and legacy that goes back to the beginning of mankind. Being an individual that will fight, and if necessary die, for what one believes in, is difficult to express with simple words. But you know that feeling. 

Mankind will continue to fight for what they believe in, and you never know when that fight is going to come to your door. Be prepared.

My earnest thanks from one veteran to another.

May God bless you and yours,

E-5 Frank
