Flag Day: Fly Your Flag, America

Interesting details on a site dedicated to Iwo Jimo. Did you know that this flag raised in the iconic picture was the second flag to be raised there? I did not, but I learned that - and a whole bunch of other fascinating stuff - here. Go read, and learn. For a history of Flag Day go here.

Because it IS Flag Day, what other video could I share, but this one, which is one of my favourite Johnny Cash.

FLY your flag, America!
