Happy Independence Day

I am proud to be an American and am thankful for those who fought and continue to fight for our freedom. Today I am most thankful for the freedom for my family and I to worship as we please. My sons are involved with the Boy Scouts of America through our church and today in honor of independence day our church had a flag raising ceremony. My son, Brandon, was part of the color guard. Karl asked his srg if he could go in to work late so that he could be there to see Brandon in this ceremony and the srg gave him permission to not only go to the ceremony in class A uniform, but he was able and participate in the ceremony too. Here are the pictures:

How neat that father and son could participate together in this ceremony. It's a great way to honor the country.
