I was born on June 14th, 1777



I am more than just cloth shaped into a design.

I am the refuge of the World's oppressed people.

I am the silent sentinel of Freedom.

I am the emblem of the greatest sovereign nation on earth.

I am the inspiration for which American Patriots gave their lives and fortunes.

I have led your sons into battle from Valley Forge to the bloody swamps of

Viet Nam.


I walk in silence with each of your Honored Dead, to their final resting place

beneath the silent White Crosses, row upon row.

I have flown through Peace and War, Strife and Prosperity, and amidst it all I

have been respected.

My Red Stripes


symbolize the blood spilled in defense of this glorious nation.

My White Stripes


signify the burning tears shed by Americans who lost their sons.

My Blue Field

is indicative of God's heaven under which I fly.

My Stars


clustered together, unify 50 States as one, for God and Country.

"Old Glory"

is my nickname, and proudly I wave on high.

Honor me, respect me, defend me with your lives and your fortunes.

Never let my enemies tear me down from my lofty position, lest I never return.

Keep alight the fires of patriotism, strive earnestly for the spirit of democracy.

Worship Eternal God and keep His commandments, and I shall remain the

bulwark of peace and freedom


for all mankind.

"I Am Your Flag."

Compliments of Colonel Daniel K. Cedusky, USAR, Retired
