I am your Flag
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 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.

Veterans Day is intended to honor and thank all military personnel who served the United States in all wars, particularly living veterans.
It is marked by parades and church services and in many places the American flag is hung at half-mast.
A period of silence lasting two minutes may be held at 11:00 AM.
~Veteran’s Day Prayer~
A prayer solemn, We offer today;
It is for Veterans, We now pray.
Selfless, sacrificial, Risking death gallantly
Soldiers do all this, To ensure we are free.
So many have died, There on the battleground;
No music then to comfort, Simply gun blasts all around.
So many names and faces, That I will never know;
So many stories of bravery, In warring winds did blow.
Grateful am I to these, Men and Women brave -
To think of all they did, All they risked, all they gave.
Extend this heartfelt prayer, I will, to reach their ears;
How treasured they are to me, Marching onward despite fears.
And for those who have passed, May God bless them lavishly
These very ones who died, So that we would live free.
In the stories of Veterans, We see a shadow of the Cross
Christ died to set us free, Our gain was through His loss.
Gratefully we praise these heroes, Often silent and unknown.
And we remember Christ’s blood, From which eternal life has grown.
