*`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 worshiped - 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!`~*~
DEDICATED IN APPRECIATION OF OUR VETS
AND ALL FIGHTING WARRIORS!
PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE!
