    A Tribute to our Flag. Submitted by Bob Thompson, Retired
    Military Veteran, Panama City, Florida
    The Flag of the United States of America


    If you're interested, Elvis is singing "America The
    Beautiful" on this tribute, so have your speakers on.

    If this doesn't give you chills, you should pack up
    and move on to another country.



    I Am the Flag of the



    Of America

    I am the flag of the United States of
    America.
    My name is Old Glory.
    I fly atop the world's tallest buildings.
    I stand watch in America's halls of
    justice.
    I fly majestically over institutions of
    learning.
    I stand guard with power in the world.
    Look up and see me.

    I stand for peace, honor, truth and
    justice.
    I stand for freedom.
    I am confident.
    I am arrogant.
    I am proud.
    When I am flown with my fellow banners,
    My head is a little higher,
    My colors a little truer.
    I bow to no one!
    I am recognized all over the world.
    I am worshipped - I am saluted.
    I am loved - I am revered.
    I am respected - and I am feared.
    I have fought in every battle of every war
    for more then 200 years. I was flown at Valley Forge, Gettysburg, Shiloh and
    Appomattox.
    I was there at San Juan Hill, the trenches
    of France,
    in the Argonne Forest, Anzio, Rome and the
    beaches of Normandy.
    Guam, Okinawa, Korea and KheSan, Saigon,
    Vietnam know me.
    I'm presently in the mountains of Afganistan
    and the hot and dusty deserts of Iraq and wherever freedom is needed.
    I led my troops, I was dirty, battleworn and
    tired,
    But my soldiers cheered me and I was proud.
    I have been burned, torn and trampled on the
    streets of countries I have helped set free.
    It does not hurt for I am invincible.
    I have been soiled upon, burned, torn and
    trampled in the streets of my country.
    And when it's done by those Whom I've served
    in battle - it hurts.
    But I shall overcome - for I am strong.
    I have slipped the bonds of Earth and stood
    watch over the uncharted frontiers of space from my vantage point on the
    moon.
    I have borne silent witness to all of
    America's finest hours.
    But my finest hours are yet to come.
    When I am torn into strips and used as
    bandages for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
    When I am flown at half-mast to honor my
    soldier,
    Or when I lie in the trembling arms of a
    grieving parent
    at the grave of their fallen son or
    daughter,

    I am proud.



    Please forward my message to all who still
    love and respect me that I may fly proudly for another two hundred years.
