It’s the only flag flying on the Moon…

Deeds are no less valiant because they go unpraised.

      • I would just hope God guides your hand….

        I read the stories of the battles in WWII, and I can’t imagine summoning that much courage. Having met some of these men, and asked about it, they would generally respond along the lines of “I was just doing my job”, or “I did it for my buddies”, or “It needed to get done so I did it”.

        Courageous yet humble men. Truly the Greatest Generation we’ve produced.

  1. Military Chaplains. They don’t get the recognition that they fully deserve. So many served above and beyond their own calling. Met some, some of the most Godly men I’ve ever been around (and was very glad to be an altar boy for them, too.)

    There was a display in the Old Ursuline Convent in New Orleans (don’t know if it’s still there) made of a full Roman Catholic priest’s portable equipment. If I remember, the priest who had it died in the field during the war and it was shipped back to his family or parish. Very very thought provoking, to think of going to war with no weapons but one’s own spirituality.

    Man, just tearing up thinking about that.

    Well, as to the flag. Will be flying it from now on till after the election. Because this country deserves it.

    • Navy Corpsmen and Army Medics did no less, at the spearpoint – at the very heart of kinetic combat, they were there that others might live, with nothing but meager (in many cases) first aid supplies, with a big red cross on a white field (a target to the Japanese in particular) on their helmet.

  2. The rioters, antifas, leftists, and other ones that destroy what hard-working people have built should be forced to visit cemeteries where those who gave all for other people’s freedom are buried.

    All those who have experienced situations where you need to fight to keep your liberty and freedom know the value of the flag, especially when you are in great distress and you see the American flag and know that now you will get the help to win.

    Let us hope that the left will not succeed in their effort to destroy the future.

    • John, these people wouldn’t think twice about desecrating a veteran’s graveyard. They don’t think the way you and I and the commenters on this blog do. They hate everyone and everything and ultimately despise themselves most of all. If you had a dog like that, you’d put it down.
