It's a grand ole flag indeed. Especially when you have been away from home for awhile. Oh, yeah, there are flags on the ships, and we all served but when coming home to the United States, and the first thing you see, that you can make out is land, flat land of the North Carolina coast, a little closer and it grows right out of the water. It was getting on toward evening and the Sun was in the west, then you see the Flag at Moorehead City where we would disembark, but that flag so high above the ground and the Sun was shining on that flag waving in the sea breeze, and you can smell land too, but that flag the Stars and stripes highlighted by the Sun, says, welcome home Marine. Of all the sites I remember that was the most beautiful site, the first time I saw that flag like that. And each time after that it was a treat to look forward to.
