"Our flag honors those who have fought to protect it, and is a reminder of the sacrifice of our nation's founders and heroes. As the ultimate icon of America's storied history, the Stars and Stripes represents the very best of this nation. " This is a quote from Congressman Joe Barton. To me this quote summarizes why flag protection is important, because the flag represents several things. Firstly and most importantly the Flag represents those that have govern their lives and sacrificed so much to ensure that the flag can fly to represent the continued freedom through the past, present, and future of the United States of America.
How do we Keep Abraham Lincoln’s Promise to our Veterans and Their Families?

How do we as Americans keep his promise?
Being in America means being safe at all times. The soldiers risk their lives for us so we can have a safe country. Soldiers put their friends and families through something that they are not used to but in the end they are relieved that they are home and safe. America is free today because of our soldiers and how they take the courage and are brave enough to go to the Navy or Afghanistan. Most people think that they join just so they can get away from their town but they are joining so they can keep this country a better place and keep it a free one.

When people show patriotism, this is showing their country love, devotion, and dedication.
I feel a debt of gratitude to America, and no better way to repay than through military service. I’ve observed that a key objective for the military is the intent to inspire. With an extensive background in family Naval history, my grandfather (Navy 0-5 F6F Hellcat pilot), uncle (Navy 0-5 F-14 pilot), mother (Navy 0-4 Intelligence Officer), and father (Navy 0-4 C-2 Greyhound pilot) have all influenced me to follow the tradition generations old. The aspiration to secure our skies and seas exhilarates me to no end. I want to provide the chance of a valuable and productive life to future posterity, attributes that have been afforded to me.

But I still think he’s important to me and the country he served which was America. America is the land of the free. We became free because we fought for civil rights. I myself think we have a good future for the United States. The US has had people come from all over the world.
If every soldier who was fighting gave up, what would our country be like today? Soldiers are honored because they stay where they are and fight for their country. They fight for what they believe in, they fight for what they believe is right.

They made the choice to leave everything behind them, and fight for others so that they don’t have to.
Sinise boasts a long record of supporting the troops through the band and his own individual efforts. For his contributions, Sinise has been recognized on multiple occasions--including being the recipient of the Presidential Citizens Medal. One of Sinise’s strongest initiatives has been for a memorial to the millions of disabled veterans in America. In an interview with the Army in 2007 Sinise noted, "Each time I visit our wounded I 'm struck by their humility, their courage, determination, their acceptance and their dedication to our country and their fellow warriors.” To provide every serviceperson and their family a good time, the band aims to give something to everyone with an array of songs ranging from “Locked Out of Heaven” to “Smoke on the Water.”

Marc was a very good man and patriot. Marc was a very supportive guy and firmly believed in what they were doing in Iraq. When needed Marc was willing to do anything for his teammates without hesitation. The song I found that I believe explains Marc is “American Soldier” by Toby Keith. The line that really portrays Marc is; “ I’m an American Soldier, and American, Beside my brothers and my sisters I will proudly take a stand, When liberty’s in jeopardy I will always do what’s right, I’m out here on the front lines”(Keith).
Throughout my childhood, my parents have taught me to be appreciative of my rights as an American and what to many, are privileges, and coming from a modest background, they have instilled me to respect and value others before myself, regardless of their economic status. Because of my parents’ hardships, I have been taught a mantra of “work hard for a better future”, and I later learned that my father’s true dream was beyond achieving personal success, but rather, he wanted to pave a way to success for my sister and me. I believe that it is my responsibility to fully take advantage of my opportunities, because my American Dream is still alive. While I carry my parents’ background, I do not share their history of poverty, and I am met with new open doors and resources that my parents were not as fortunate to have. I want to pursue a higher education, and I aspire to become a stem cell scientist, which will allow me to contribute to research that holds promises of new cures and treatments.
