The American flag gives me a little catch in my throat.
It stands for life, death, victory, freedom, and so much more.
For the brave men and women who gave everything.
Yes, we go all out with flags on Memorial Day.
It is not enough.
We think our veterans deserve the best and do not get much these days.
Joes's father was in the military.
Joe has lived all over the world on military bases.
Joe's brother served in Vietnam when he was a young man.
Joe wrote to him every day he was in that war.
Thankfully he came home.
Joe would gladly have signed up but he is blind in one eye.
