Old and Worn
I got my first Old Glory when I was 7. I flew it as often as my parents allowed. Just something about seeing the flag fly. I still get that feeling. I love to see flags waving in the breeze. Love to see them in parades being held my small children or the military.
This is my first flag, it is the one I purchased when I was 7. It's seen better days, it's a bit tattered. I don't fly it any more, it been replaced by a newer model. But, the new flags just are built the same, don't have the same meaning, the same memories as this one.
