The Flag of Freedom
President George Washington once said, “If we desire peace it must be known at all times that we are ready for war.”
Since 1776, no generation of Americans has been spared the responsibility of defending freedom through armed conflict with the forces of tyranny and oppression. More than 40 million men and women have put on the uniform of a United States soldier, sailor, Marine, Coast Guardsman, or pilot. Of these, more than one million paid the price of freedom with their lives.
