Today is Veteran's Day in the United States, a day to remember those who have fought for our freedom throughout our history. It is this day more than others that we also see the POW/MIA flag flying prominently, reminding us of those brave soldiers who were captured in conflict, some of whom have never made it home to this day. If you get the opportunity today, be sure to thank an armed forces veteran for the freedom you enjoy!
Also, today is statehood day for the state of Washington, in 1889, celebrated by the 43-star flag as well as their own state standard.

"Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!" - Patrick Henry (Wikipedia)
