In almost every country in the world, men and women have fought and died in their country’s military. Some served for what they believed in. Some served because it was their job. Some served because someone higher up told them they had to. And some had no idea why they were there. Regardless their reasons, today we are stopping to remember those United States military men and women who died.
The United States flag consists of 13 horizontal stripes, representing the original 13 states. There are 50 stars on a blue field, representing the current 50 states. Apart from the number of stars and stripes, there is no official meaning to the flag’s colors.
