Today we celebrate Independence Day on July 4th. I am so glad I live in this great country. No other country on earth is like America. My ancestors moved here in the mid-late 1600s from Germany and Ireland. I’m so glad they did. One of my great grandfathers was a Lieutenant in the Revolutionary War. I had relatives that served in WWII, the Korean War and Vietnam. I was born during WWII. Although my parents lived in rural Ohio, my father went to work in an airplane plant in Detroit, coming home every couple weekends. My sister, who was 18 when I was born, worked in a factory nearby making military parts – a real Rosie-the-riviter. Her boyfriend (and eventual husband) was serving in the Navy in the Philippines. I grew up going to the local parades which had a strong military influence. At school we always said the Pledge of Allegiance first thing before class began. I consider myself a #PROUDAMERICAN.
The Flag flies all year on my house as it does on several of my neighbors’ homes. However, on Memorial Day, Independence Day and Veteran’s Day I display many small flags to show my devotion to my country. I’m so grateful that I have the FREEDOM to do that! #MAGA
