Real patriotism is a willingness to challenge the government when it's wrong.
A soldier will fight long and hard for a bit of colored ribbon.
Our national motto is 'In God we Trust,' reminding us that faith in our Creator is the most important American value of all.

This year, as we celebrate the 230th anniversary of America's independence, please remember the symbols that are sacred to this country. Fly Old Glory high and show your respect and admiration for this great nation and the values we hold dear.
We live in a time of conflict - external and internal - when we sometimes concentrate too much on what divides us. Today, fly the Stars and Stripes with pride and confidence that what unites is far stronger.
