America

One has to leave it to understand and truly love it. One has to sit in isolation and yearn for it, and once one has experienced the yearning, then one understands it more and loves it with the proper awe.

Dedicated By:

The Winnebago County Posts of the American legion and Veterans of Foreign wars.

Freedom is not free

This flag represents America. It honors all who have given in total so others could have freedom. It honors the veterans, the spouses who endured and children who went without.

In honor and memory of all men and women who served the armed forces of the United States of America.
