Thank you dear Veterans

 
 
A Boy Creates A Flag For A Class Assignment, But No One Expected THIS!!
 
The men and women who serve America in the Military deserve our full respect and support.  They risk their lives around the world to keep us safe.
Soldiers are why America is free. And when we have the chance to take care of veterans, we MUST always do so.
 
Jacob, a young man from Indiana, designed an American flag for a school art project.  What he did is going viral in a BIG WAY!
 

There are 4,466 army soldiers on the flag, painted red, white, and blue.  It took more than 52 hours.
 
What a great way to honor the troops! Jacob deserves an A+ for his art project.

He shall be great who serves his country well.
He shall be loved who ever guards her fame.
His worth the starry banner long shall tell,
Who loves his land too much to stoop to shame.

Who shares the splendor of these sunny skies
Has freedom as his birthright, and may know
Rich fellowship with comrades brave and wise;
Into the realms of manhood he may go.

Who writes, ‘United States’ beside his name
Offers a pledge that he himself is true;
Gives guarantee that selfishness or shame
Shall never mar the work he finds to do.

He is received world-wide as one who lives
Above the sordid dreams of petty gain,
And is reputed as a man who gives
His best to others in their hours of pain.

This is the heritage of Freedom’s soil:
High purposes and lofty goals to claim.
And he shall be rewarded for his toil
Who loves his land too much to stoop to shame. 

Edgar A. Guest
