One Nation Under God.

 

Elvis is singing "America The Beautiful" on this tribute.

If this doesn't give you chills,

you should pack up and move on to another country.

 

   

I Am the Flag of the
UNITED STATES of AMERICA.

My name is Old Glory.
  I fly atop the world's tallest buildings.

 
 I stand watch in America's halls of justice.
  I fly majestically over institutions of learning.

 
 I stand guard with power in the  world.
  Look up and see me.
 I stand for peace, honor, truth and  justice.
  I stand for freedom.
 I am confident.
 I am arrogant.
 I am  proud.
 When I am flown with my fellow banners,
 My head is a little  higher,
 My colors a little truer.
 I bow to no one!
 I am recognized  all over the world.
 I am worshipped - I am saluted.
 I am loved - I am  revered.
 I am respected - and I am feared.
 I have fought in every battle of every war for more then 200 years. I was flown at Valley Forge, Gettysburg, Shiloh and Appomattox.

 I was there at San Juan Hill, the trenches of France,
 in the Argonne Forest, Anzio, Rome and the beaches of  Normandy.
 Guam, Okinawa, Korea and Khe Sanh, Saigon, Vietnam know me.
 I'm presently in the mountains of Afghanistan and the hot and dusty deserts of Iraq and wherever freedom is needed.

 
I led my troops, I was dirty, battle worn and tired,
 But my soldiers cheered me and I was proud.
 I have been burned, torn and trampled on the
 streets of countries I have helped set free.
 It does not hurt for I am  invincible.

 
I have been soiled upon, burned, torn and trampled in the streets of my country.
 And when it's done by those Whom I've served in battle - it hurts.
 But I shall overcome - for I am strong.

 
I have slipped the bonds of Earth and stood watch over the uncharted frontiers of space from my vantage point on the moon.
 I have borne silent witness to all of America's finest hours.
  But my finest hours are yet to come. 

 
When I am torn into strips and used as bandages for my wounded comrades on the  battlefield,
 When I am flown at half-mast to honor my soldier,

 
Or when I  lie in the trembling arms of a grieving parent
 
at the grave of their fallen son or daughter,
 
 I am proud.

 The Flag of The United States of America, One Nation Under God.

Tribute to the flag of The United States of America, One Nation Under God.

 
 
By Bob Thompson,
 
Retired Military Veteran,
 
Panama City, Florida.

Please forward my message to all who still love and respect me
 
that I may fly proudly for another two hundred years.
