old glory
I am the Star Spangled Banner....conceived in 1777 out of the love America bore for Liberty and Honor.

I am the Memorial of countless heros who shed their blood to preserve this sacred heritage.

I have inspired generations of gallant men who fought against tyranny.

I am the spirit of Valley Forge....of sacrifice....of courage.

I have guarded every rampart where Freedom defended its glorious cause....

Tripole...Belleau Woods...Argonne Forest...Omaha Beach...Anzio...Bastogne...Guadacanal...Coral Sea...Leyte Gulf...Iwo Jima...Korea...Viet Nam...Persian Gulf.

I fly wherever Americans give their lives to preserve the sanctity of life.

My home is in the hearts of all who feel a thrill of pride when they salute me and what I symbolize-

God ~ Country ~ Freedom ~ Valor
