At the heart of America are the armed forces that protect and defend our nation. Each branch of the military holds a special place with specific duties and obligations. Salute sharply to all of the men and women in all branches of the service who protect our country and each of us as individuals. They can be called upon at a moment's notice to perform a risky and perilous mission for the freedoms America offers on a continuous daily basis. They train diligently both physically and mentally so they will be prepared to prevail in any mission they face.
October 27 is...
U.S. Navy Day
The American Flag and Navy Flag are flying honorably at the grave site of my dad.
He served in the Navy and was on active duty during World War II at Iwo Jima.
Chester Clyde Lee, U.S. Navy

An honorable salute is also extended on this day to my husband, Jim, who is a U.S. Navy veteran. Thank you for your service, support and dedication to America. A humble recognition but from the heart!
Do you know the code by which Our Flag is flown?
