Post Scripts: Special memories

The American Flag does not fly because the wind moves it, but the American Flag flies from the last breath of each military member who has died protecting it. American soldiers don’t fight because of what is in front of them, they fight because they love what’s behind them. These words came off of Facebook July 4, and I thought they were worth repeating.
