On every United States military installation around the globe, twice a day everyone stops where they are, even if they’re in vehicles, to salute the flag. In the morning at 6 am, the “Colors” are raised, and every evening at 5 pm they are lowered. Those in uniform salute. Everything stops. It is a most amazing and inspirational sight. These children reflect the culture of Respect for our Flag that most Americans cannot fathom. They understand the cost of freedom better than most. It doesn’t look as though they are suffering for it, does it?
