'Ole Glory Coast to Coast - Veyo, Utah

 

We respectfully fly the U.S. flag every day of the year in front of our residence, spotlighting it at night. 'Ole Glory greets all, proudly waving to everyone that happens to be traveling up or down the road, daily.

 

 

My husband and I have military backgrounds and it is more than just a piece of colored cloth ran up a flagpole. It speaks for freedom and the:

  • White signifies purity and innocence
  • Red, hardiness & valour, and the
  • Blue signifies vigilence, perseverence & justice

 

 

Many lives have been lost defending our country and those heroes deserve to be honored every single day. If everyone respected and valued those lives, what an amazing and veritable force the U.S. would become again.

 

When attending Chamber of Commerce meetings, real estate events and weekly Board tours, the entire room stands with their hands over their hearts while turning to face the flag and recite The Pledge of Allegiance.  

 

 

She is also lowered at half mast from sunrise to sunset of that day when the nation is in a state of mourning. This period can last from one to 30 days upon the death of a current instated or former president.

 

 

The following are national days of remembrance, and half-staff flag days:

  • Peace Officers Memorial Day - MAY (The date varies by year, but occurs annually during National Police Week)
  • Memorial Day - MAY (Observed on the last Monday in May)
  • Patriot Day - SEPTEMBER 11
  • National Firefighters Memorial Day - OCTOBER (The exact date varies by year, but occurs annually during National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend)
  • Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day - DECEMBER 7

Hi Wanda- I agree with you...if more people respected what many have sacrificed for us, and if we came together again, we would be a force to be reckoned with. I love your patriotism. 

I echo what you said...when I was an affiliate with the WCR in Palm Beach County, I love how we all stood and said the Pledge of Allegiance.

The Pledge of Allegiance takes me back to elementary school days when we proudly recited it every morning. My patriotism has grown exponentially since then Kathy Streib! The United States of America will always be the greatest country in the world, despite what is happening right now because of poor leadership and bad decisions.

I really like the look of that eagle with the flag as its colors!  I will have to show it to my younger brother since he is fond of eagles.

Good morning Wanda - the flag is the symbol of our freedom and reciting the pledge before meetings is very important to me.  By the way I learned so much about the beauty weather of southern Utah as I listened to your presentation.

Am patriotic every day of the year and the U.S. flag always captures my attention Grant Schneider. When living on a military base, the National Anthem is played, people stop, even getting put of their cars to stand (those who are able), salute or put their hand over their heart, then face the flag in honor the song. I loved doing that!

Thank you Carla Freund, my husband is retired from military service, mine was a short stint! The military life is a good life, encourages discipline and gives people a true direction in life. Besides, true heroes wear dog tags!

I know many people who have good lives because of the military. We've had many people in our family serve. Military people have a certain bond that is so admirable.

Our flag is a thing of beauty and your post reminded me of something famously said by Winston Churchill during WWII.

"Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few."

He was referring to early air battles between the British RAF and German Luftwaffe but it always reminds me of any wartime battle and how so many of us are beholden to the few that fight for us.

That Winston Churchill quote says it all Margaret Goss and if only those hating America could open their eyes to the many. many sacrifices, perhaps they wouldn't be so intent on destroying everything this country was built upon. Our freedoms are being threatened!
