Stand tall on the 4th

Stand tall on the 4th and kneel down at the grave of those who gave all for our country. My father, a WWII hero with the Distinguished Flying Cross, made sure I understood this when, prior to any barbecue, we would drive to the veteran’s cemetery in Morristown, New Jersey to place flags by his pals who didn’t come home.
