Picture1  Please join One Marine’s View in the FLY THE FLAG campaign during the OMV September Support Series and PLEASE forward this post to your friends and family. We have less
than 3 weeks and counting to get the word out all across this great
land and into every community in the United States of America.


On Sunday, September 11, 2011, an American flag should be displayed
outside every home, apartment, office and store in the United States.
Every individual should make it their duty to display an American flag on the
tenth anniversary of one of our country's worst tragedies. We do this to honor those who lost their lives on 9/11, their families, friends and loved ones who continue to endure the pain, and those who today are fighting at home and abroad to preserve our cherished freedoms.

In the day, weeks and months following 9/11, our country was bathed in
American flags as citizens mourned the incredible losses and stood
shoulder-to-shoulder against terrorism. Stand proud and display those flags have all year – but especially on 9/11.  Our patriotism pulled us through some tough times and it shouldn't take another attack to galvanize us in solidarity. Our American flag is the 
fabric of our country and together we can prevail over terrorism of all kinds

Don’t have an American flag? Print one out HERE and put in your window, hang it in your office…you get the idea.


Time for a CGar!



  1. Thanks warriors. Sad thing is that since this was posted and over 2000 visitors in a day you are the only ones that mentioned they have their flags up. A reflection of America or that of people leving comments? Could go either way. Thank you for showing your American pride!

  2. What a great way to give 9/11 some context that my 5 and 7 yr old boys can understand. We will get a flag today and fly it from our balcony. Probably upset the apt management terribly. Then we’ll have the lesson of why it’s great to have a brother that’s really a lawyer. Another American Tradition. Hope there is a flag flying at every house, business, etc. “On The Way! Target!”

  3. Message forwarded; flag flies every day; special thanks to all first responders and troops here and abroad, and all their families who sacrifice so much for our country. We will always remember.

  4. I’m a “Doggie,” an Army Veteran. The flag flies outside our house 365 on a 25′ pole we built and raised ourselves. My sons help with raising and lowering (haven’t got a light on it yet and besides, the activity keeps it in mind.)
    I am old enough in my 50s, to remember a suburban street where every 4th of July and Memorial Day and other such, saw an unbroken stream of US flags on the houses. Just about everybody was a WWII veteran it seemed and they knew what the flag stood for and has stood against.
    Now it seems the flown flag is the exception rather than the rule. Even worse, is that on many flag days you’ll see all manner of “flags” of butterflies, birds and the like. I have nothing against those things but when they are hung out in place of the US flag, it disturbs me mightily! I go so far as to take it as a personal insult. I got off cheap. I only gave 7 years of my life and now later in life am disabled as a result of my service. It just seems as a waste sometimes.
