I am very proud to call this country my home; For it truly is the Land of the Free and the home of the brave. Out
of all of our nation’s monuments, this one is my favorite. The Marines
raising the flag symbolizes all of the American people raising a country
built on the idea that we can all be free. I am very proud to be an
American and I thank God for our country and for all the veterans who
fought and died for our rights and freedom.
