I am your flag. I am the flag of the United States of America. I am called Old Glory. I am called the Star Spangled Banner. I am the rockets red glare; The bombs bursting in air. I am the imminence of patriotism. I am the trenches in France, Belgium, Anzio, Normandy, Omaha Beach, Guadalcanal, and Korea. I am the jungles of Vietnam. And the streets of Bosnia. I am "One Nation under God." I am the names of those who never came back. To keep this republic free. When you salute me, You are actually saluting them. I am the symbol of America. The home of the proud, the brave and the free.

In Memory

This video (click here) shows the soldiers of 2/1 RNZIR Battalion performing their Unit haka, powerfully acknowledging the lives and feats of their fallen comrades as they come onto the Unit's parade ground. It is also an emotive farewell for they will leave via the waharoa (the carved entrance way) for the very last time.  It is an honorable Welcome Home for the fallen.
