Yesterday, was the first time since moving onto the base, that I got stopped by the playing of the national anthem while driving home. For those of you who may not know, here at Robins AFB, (I am not sure how many other bases do it as well) every day at 5 pm they play “The Star-Spangled Banner.” When it is played, everyone in the cares must stop driving where they are. Everyone is uniform who is outside must stand at attention towards the flag.
Living on the base, and hearing the national anthem played every day has reminded me of everything our military members fight for. Today, seeing every car and every person stopped, all over the base not a single person moving in honor of our national anthem, really hit home for me. What an honor it is to be able to hear that everyday, and know that we live in a free country!
I am so glad that people still honor our flag, and our national anthem. I don’t know if such patriotism exists in other countries, but I am glad it does in ours. No matter what may be going on in our country, I am proud to be an American, and I am proud of our country’s Christian heritage! I am glad for the reminder every day that we are blessed!
