We have always had a flag flying at our home.
My Dad loved the United States of America and loved the beautiful Stars and Stripes!
He is a Veteran of World War II.
There were many special occasions when the family would rise early, have breakfast and then attend our "Flag Ceremony". We always did this on Independence Day. The little ones would learn how sacred this flag is and how to raise and lower the flag properly. Also, how important it is to salute the flag as it is raised or comes past you as colors are posted.
To honor her Grandfather's who both fought in wars, my daughter Amanda erected an honor flag pole in her front yard and has a plague honoring them with their names engraved - Elden G. Price and Leo C. Petersen. I am excited to stand at this flag pole and salute them and the flag.
