THE FLAG FLIES AT HALF-STAFF

By Roland D. Matteson, SAL Past National Commander

Over the rubble remains of the World Trade Center,
The Flag flies at half-staff.
Over the Pentagon where our soldiers and sailors lay,
The Flag flies at half-staff.
All through the towns and villages of our Great Nation,
The Flag flies at half-staff.
And I believe over the gates of heaven,
The Flag flies at half-staff.
And in my heart and mind,
The Flag flies at half-staff.
