Near Waynesboro in Augusta County, Virginia — The American South (Mid-Atlantic)
I am the Star Spangled Banner.....
conceived in 1777 out of the love
America bore for Liberty and Honor.
I am the memorial of countless heroes who
shed their blood to preserve this
I have inspired generations of gallant men
who fought against tyranny.
I am the spirit of Valley Forge.....
of sacrifice..... of courage.
I have guarded every rampart where freedom
defended its glorious cause....
Tripoli... Belleau Wood...Argonne Forest
…Guadalcanal… Coral Sea…
Leyte Gulf...Iwo Jima...Korea...
I fly wherever Americans gave their lives to
preserve the sanctity of life.
My home is in the hearts of all who feel a
thrill of pride when they salute me
and what I symbolize—
God • Country • Freedom • Valor
