Salut! Flag

Never have I know the story behind the song.
I am truly touched.

A great yarn Gelan. Its very interesting to hear how some songs/anthems came to be. Just think...we nearly ended up with Waltzing Matilda. How would they explain that one. Laughing

Cheers, Vince

That ought to be mandatory in every school in the US. So many forget our history. Thanks Gelan for sharing that!

Yeah Gelan that was well done. I always have admired the flag. Bein from a bit of military background it tends to give you a certain pride in the flag too. Oh yeah they murdered lots of Indians to get what they wanted, but that was another time, can't forgive, but the America I live in is not that way now. They're gettin smart and learnin from the Natives.

Suz

P.S. I have to add to that cause it really cracks me up....I'll start a new thread...

Thank You Gelandangan!
Certainly a proud moment in our history. I wonder what these brave men would think if they could see thier country today...
