HERO ON BOARD... thank you for being a hero ! Will pray for your family.

HERO(S) ON BOARD: releasing smoke and flares. "Angels Flight" is the call sign for a USA carrying a fallen hero/heroes on board. This is their "salute" when releasing the flares as it looks like an Angel with wings.

Your freedom is the most expensive thing you own... even if you didn't pay for it yourself.

God Bless those who have given their lives for their country. God Bless the United States of America.

People like this are true americans. This man refused to get on his knees.

This a real HERO, not that piece of junk football player that refuses to stand for our NATIONAL ANTHEM

American soil…This almost made me cry.

American soil…

A soldier in Iraq asked his wife to send him dirt (U. soil), fertilizer, and some grass seed. When the men of the squadron have a mission, they take turns walking through the grass and the American soil to bring them good luck.
