“Oh, thus be it ever, when free men shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n-rescued land
Praise the Pow’r that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: ‘In God is our Trust!’
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!”
– Francis Scott Key, “The Star-Spangled Banner”
We want to thank all who have sacrificed so much to preserve the freedoms we enjoy. May God continue to bless this country and those who have and are serving to preserve it.
