I couldn't stop with just one great looking flag, noooo! This could be one of those "if one is good, more is better" post.
I love the American Flag, it is the most beautiful flag in the whole world, to me and to you too, I imagine.
As some of you know my son is in the Army and is serving our country in Iraq. I am so proud of him and all our young men and women. And the thing is, they are "our young" for the most part, they are courageous and dedicated and some of them give their lives to keep us free.
This is the ceremony where his company covers their unit's flag until they come home. Very moving.
My sweet boy.
Some of his friends and their momma's sweet boys.
They are the reason we go to bed safe and sleep sound at night.
My favorite quote is;
"America land of the free because of the Brave"

I saw this on this blog and I have heard it said that to imitate another is the best form of flattery so I copied her post and hope she knows it's because I loved it so much.
It Is The American Soldier
It is the soldier, not the reporter,
Who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the soldier, not the poet,
Who has given us the freedom of speech.
It is the soldier, not the campus organizer,
Who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.
It is the soldier,
Who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag.
Father Denis Edward O'Brien, USMC
Thanks Kelly, I love you girl.
