Barb Downey read, "I Am Old Glory" that was written by Master Sergeant Percy Webb, U.S. Marine Corps.
Stotler gave a little history of the flag and the meaning of the colors of the flag. Remember as you look at your flag, which is the symbol of our nation, that it is Red because of human sacrifice, it is Blue because of the true blue loyalty of its defenders, it is White to symbolize liberty - our land of the free. The stars are the symbols of the united efforts and hope in the hearts of many people striving for a greater nobler America.
