Lets not forget to honor our fallen that sacrificed all for our American way of life.

Let us honor them today and everyday, celebrate those freedoms and pay our respects to our flag which stands as a symbol of our nation worldwide.

This is a video of the Honor Guard at Arlington National Cemetery folding a flag.

I will be showing this to my Boy Scout troop.

    #2 To the men who died in the War for Independence, we salute you.
    #3 To those men who fell in the War of 1812, to preserve our freedom, we salute you.
    #4 To the brave soldiers on both sides, The North and The South, in the Civil War, we salute you.
    #5 To those who shed their blood in the name of hope and freedom in The Great War, we salute you.
    #6 For our fathers and sons who died in the terrible battles of World War Two, Pearl Harbor, Anzio, Midway, The Bulge, Iwo Jima, Guadalcanal, Normandy, and Berlin, we salute you.
    #7 To the men of the First Marine Division, who, in a rear guard action at the Chosin Reservoir in Korea saved their battalion and the lives of their brother Marines, we salute you.
    #8 For the brave men and women of our armed forces who died on the fields of fire in Vietnam and whose names will live on forever on that hallowed wall, we salute you.
    #9 For our commander in chief, who leads our nation in good times, and bad, we salute you.

    #12 To the men and women of our armed forces, the Arsenal of Democracy and the Hammer of Freedom, we salute you.
    #13 And last, to freedom, because with out freedom there is no honor, without honor, we are not Americans, and on this we vow, that as long as this flag flies, we salute you.
    "Great lives never go out, they go on."
    Benjamin Harrison 1833-1901
