My name is Old Glory.
 I fly atop the world's tallest buildings.
 I stand watch in
America's halls of justice.
 I fly majestically over institutions of learning.
 I stand guard with power in the  world.
 Look up and see me.
 
I stand for peace, honor, truth and  justice.
 I stand for freedom.
I am confident.
I am arrogant.
I am  proud.
 
When I am flown with my fellow banners,
My head is a little  higher,
My colors a little truer.
 
I bow to no one!
I am recognized  all over the world.
I am worshipped - I am saluted.
I am loved - I am  revered.
I am respected - and I am feared.
 
I have fought in every battle of every war for more then 200 years.

I was flown at Valley ForgeGettysburg, Shiloh and Appamatox.

I was there at San Juan Hill, the trenches of France,

in the Argonne Forrest. Anzio, Rome and the beaches of Normandy ,

Guam, Okinowa, Korea and Khe San, Saigon, Vietnam know me.

 

 I was  there.


I led my troops, I was dirty, battleworn and tired,
But my soldiers  cheered me and I was proud.
 
I have been burned, torn and trampled on the

streets of countries I have helped set free.
It does not hurt for I am  invincible.
I have been soiled upon, burned, torn and

trampled in the streets of my country.
And when it's done by those

Whom I've served in battle - it  hurts.
But I shall overcome - for I am strong.
 
I have slipped the  bonds of Earth

and stood watch over the uncharted

frontiers of space from my vantage point on the moon.
I have borne silent witness to all of
America's finest hours.
 
But my finest hours are yet to come.
 

 When I am torn  into strips and used as bandages for 

my wounded comrades on the  battlefield,
When I am flown at half-mast to honor my soldier,
Or when I  lie in the trembling arms of a grieving parent
at the grave of their fallen son or daughter,

I am proud.
