I Am Your Flag
I am your flag.
I am the flag of the United States of America.
I am called Old Glory and
I am called the Star Spangled Banner.
I am the rockets red glare; the bombs bursting in air.
I am the imminence of patriotism.
I am the trenches of France, Belgium, Anzio, Normandy, Omaha Beach, Guadalcanal and Korea.
I am the jungle of Vietnam and the streets of Bosnia.
I am "One nation under God."
I am the names of those who never came back to keep this nation free.
When you salute me, you are actually saluting them.
I am the symbol of America, the home of the proud, the brave and the free.
