Flag 7- I've been wanting to share these photos with you for some time but hesitated as I know you are more than a little "busy". I just thought it might do your heart good to know I penned these words for Bill's Memorial Stone 42 years ago with the same pride and passion I feel about his service today. He's been missed every day by all of us that love him. But there are no regrets for the choice he made to serve our beautiful America. Keep up the fire, Major. Prayers out for you and yours.



Flag 8-My family has flown the flag since September 12, 2001.  Our flag has been vandalized numerous times.  It's been torn down and thrown on the ground.  Torn down and tossed into the street.  Torn down and stuffed into our trash can.  Torn down and stolen altogether. 
We've kept replacing it, the most recent time with a "vandal-proof" flag pole that my husband designed and built.  We refuse to let some punk prevent us from flying our country's flag. 
I love to come home at night and see our flag lit up in the dark.  It can be seen up and down the street.  Sadly, ours is the only house in the neighborhood to fly the flag.

  4. That Warrior flying flag 12 in Afghanistan has me crying my eyes out. I would to God that all of America would have his Warrior’s heart for this Republic. I appreciate each person that reads and post here and those that took the time to send pics of their flags and especially you and all those with you Major. Keep up the fire!

  5. Thanks warriors for all the comments. Want to help your warriors, help me spread the word about them and send them a post from OMV. Like that of “Reckless” above, if we don’t teach others of those that have gone before us, they will disappear into history and we cant let that happen to your Marines. Semper Fi
