Stars and Stripes

On the Birthday of this great nation, let’s not forget those that gave us the freedom to wave that beautiful flag.

As you hold your loved ones close watching the fireworks tonight, please remember the American Veteran.

These brave men and women have given up the joy of watching fireworks, or having a picnic, or seeing their children run through the sprinkler on a hot July day.

These men and women of yesterday and today, willingly gave up their comfortable bed, so that we may sleep safe and secure in ours tonight. They are out there in the rain and the mud or the cold or the terrible heat, to be sure that your family has the right and the freedom to enjoy this holiday.

There are men women that are doing what most of us don’t want to think about. Things that are necessary in order to be sure that other soldiers can come home to their families. These horrible realities that you turn your conscience from, turn your back on, insure your safety and mine.

So this year, when you look up proudly at the symbol of our nation, the Red, White and Blue American flag, just remember what it takes to keep that flag flying proudly and free.

Thank a vet.
