Get your Flag ready....
Please join us in this FLY THE FLAG campaign and PLEASE forward this Email immediately to everyone in your address book asking them to also forward
it.
If you forward this email to least 11 people and each of those people do the same ... you get the idea.

THE PROGRAM:

On Thursday, September 11th, 2010, an American flag should be displayed outside every home, apartment, office, and store in the United States .
Every individual should make it their duty to display an American flag on this day, the anniversary of one of our country's worst tragedies. We do this
in honor of those who lost their lives on 9/11, their families, friends and loved ones who continue to endure the pain, and those who today are
fighting at home and abroad to preserve our cherished freedoms.

In the days, weeks and months following 9/11, our country was bathed in American flags as citizens mourned the incredible losses and stood
shoulder-to-shoulder against terrorism. Sadly, those flags have all but disappeared. Our patriotism pulled us through some tough times and it
shouldn't take another attack to galvanize us in solidarity. Our American
flag is the fabric of our country and together we can prevail over terrorism of all kinds.

Action Plan:

So, here's what we need you to do ...

(1) Forward this email to everyone you know (at least 11 people). Please don't be the one to break this chain. Take a moment to think back to how
you felt on 9/11 and let those sentiments guide you.

(2) Fly an American flag of any size on 9/11. Honestly, Americans should fly the flag year-round, but if you don't, then at least make it a priority on this day.

Thank you for your participation. God Bless You and God Bless America !!!

It will be an honor to fly the flag. I have two sons in the military. I believe its in part because of 9/11. My youngest (19 when he enlisted) joined the Marines in Jan and my oldest (25) joined the Army in August. OOH-RAH and HOOAH Beachbum
