"broad stripes and bright stars"

~...gallantly streaming, land of the free, home of the brave~ Sgt Kyle "Scooter"Mackey Broughton, my hero, my One Son. He is so far away, out of harms way today, but oh how I want to honor him and all the men and women before, with and after him, on this day, and every day. THE SIGNIFICANCE OF A BACKWARDS FLAG ( click here) IS WHEN A SOLDIER HAS SERVED IN WARTIME. It represents marching into the battlefield. I learned this when Scooter called me to announce his first tattoo on the calf of his leg!
