This home in Blossom Valley San Jose is among the most well-cared-for homes in my neighborhood.
We see the pride in ownership and pride in flying "Old Glory".
California is definitely not Texas so we do not see a lot of flags like this in residential communities.
I was born in California. Back in the day, every morning in school, we stood and faced the American Flag that proudly hung in every classroom, and we pledged allegiance to the flag with the following:
The Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag: "I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." [emphasis added]
In 1954, in response to the Communist threat of the times, President Eisenhower encouraged Congress to add the words "under God".
Why is the American flag called Old Glory?
"Old Glory is a nickname for the flag of the United States. The original "Old Glory" was a flag owned by the 19th-century American sea captain William Driver, who flew the flag during his career at sea and later brought it to Nashville, Tennessee, where he settled." Wikipedia
I am proud. My name is “Old Glory.” Long may I wave, dear God, long
may I wave.” Source: Old Glory
