Patriotism is the dedication; loyalty; devotion; respect; faithful etc. Being a patriot means do whatever it takes to honor your country. In the essay, Veterans Day: Never Forget Their Duty, Mike Christian was a POW, captured by the Vietnam. As stated in the text, he sewed an American flag so him and the other POW’s that were captured could say the pledge of allegiance. He knew he’d get in lots of trouble if he would get caught. He ended up getting caught and getting beaten for what he did, but he sewed another flag on his clothes. That is an example of patriotism. Even though he was terribly beaten, he showed loyalty to his country.
