Flag Day

“And let us never forget that in honoring our flag, we honor the American men and women who have courageously fought and died for it…” -President Ronald Reagan

From President Reagan’s 1986 Flag Day Radio Address:

“As the American Republic grew and prospered and new stars were added to the flag, the ideal of freedom grew and prospered. From the rolling hills of Kentucky to the shores of California to the Sea of Tranquility on the Moon, our pioneers carried our flag before them, a symbol of the indomitable spirit of a free people. And let us never forget that in honoring our flag, we honor the American men and women who have courageously fought and died for it over the last 200 years, patriots who set an ideal above any consideration of self. Our flag flies free today because of their sacrifice.”

What powerful words from our fortieth president! Happy Flag Day, and God bless America!

    We also celebrated Flag Day at our Rally in Loveland CO! There is some amazing trivia and facts on Flag Day on the internet. God Bless all our Veterans and those who have sacrificed so that our flag still flies!

      Colorado? Hope you are away from the fires – just so sad to see all those houses burning up on the news.
