This American flag was a special gift from a dear friend who is an US Air Force Pilot. He is currently serving overseas, supporting Operation Enduring Freedom, and he was able to fly this flag on his plane on my birthday in my honor.
I received it this past week, and it could not have arrived at a more perfect time. It seems to be an appropriate picture for today as we remember the 10th anniversary of September 11th and the innocent lives lost during the terrorist attacks on that day.
Thank you to all the service men and women who put their lives at risk every day to protect the people of the United States of America.
