Flag
Flag

This Flag is very special to me. My grandfather served our country for many years. My husband helped me understand the tremendous respect to have for a flag when you have the chance to handle it. It can never touch the floor and should be honored at all times. We bought a case for the flag and have it hanging above my computer. I glance up at it and remember my grandfather. In a grandfathers book he briefly talks about what he did for the service. But I wish I was able to ask more questions. Now that I am older I feel that I have more of an interest to know all about it.
I hope that I am able to get the opportunity to talk to my other grandfather about his experience in Pearl Harbor.

Wonderful post. :) I have several family members of different generations (my dad, grandpa, several cousins) that have served. My dad really doesn't talk about his service in Vietnam, though. When he does, I listen intently because it is rare.

Beautiful post....my grandfathers both served in WWII - but, neither of them were willing to talk about their experiences there - they both also left the military right after the war. The flag will be a great lesson for your boys as they are growing up!
