A day to remember

The flag is more than a symbol. It’s a piece of home and a reminder to the brave soldiers of what they fight for and should remind us all of those who defend us.

    This pic is the thousand words that no words can express. When our military is on foreign soil, Flag Day must be even more meaningful. God Bless Master Sgt. Timothy Deramus and those keeping our flag flying. MNR, I linked you in my flag day posts.

    Hi Robot, this is a very stirring photo. The Flag is a wonderful symbol of all America Stands for. It is precious, and like Maggie said, it expresses so much to those fighting
    bravely on foreign soil.
    Happy Flag day to you!

    That is a simply inspirational pic. It’s humbling to see the obvious patriotism in the folks that are overseas protecting us.

    My flag was looking a little worn, so I bought a new one. Hubby brought the old one down, folded in appropriately and raised the new one. It looks great. The flag flies at our house all year long.

      Hi Debbie! Yep, I love a good flag display. Let’s ’em know just where your heart is.
