Memorial Day

I think we're the only military family that doesn't own a flag of the United States of America. It pains me to admit it. I've always wanted one, but never did anything about it. Why? Perhaps it was a budget issue. I don't know. When I've mentioned a flag to my husband, he brings up the maintenance aspect... who's going to bring it in at night? Or make sure it has a light shining on it?

Now that we're in the Army, I wish we had one even more. It's awkward to be the only house on your block that isn't flying Old Glory. So, I'll fly one here....



Remember all those who made the ultimate sacrifice for this country and our freedom.
Celebrate the lives they lived and the families they left behind.

  1. You aren't the only family, we've never had one either, strictly for the lack of time to maintain it properly. I had quite a few friends on my mind Monday at work, and I was sure to shake hands and thank every Veteran I came into contact with, because they deserve it.
