Thanks for posting, Andy. And I treasure the flag which you donated, and which flew over the U.S.S. Arizona on 7 December 2012...which I received at a rally earlier this year. My Dad served during WW II (Leyte and Luzon) and retired after 26 years in the Army. I served for 20 and did a year in Vietnam. My son graduated from West Point and served 5 years. While my Dad is now buried at Arlington, my son and I keep the traditions alive, and in particular on Veteran's Day, Memorial Day, and Pearl Harbor Day. We have added 9/11 to this. I have also visited some of the most beautiful military cemeteries both in the US and Europe. Seeing thousands of white markers truly brings home what prices have been paid for our freedom. I continue to work with the US military and am continually amazed at the wonderful young Americans who continue to serve. We are privileged people who live in a privileged country. Freedom has definitely not been free.
