The Ragged Old Flag
Reading Barbary's post about being proud of his father brought this to mind. It was written by Johnny Cash.

that is a great song it does the same thing to me that the Marines Hymn does, sends shivers down my spine.

Great song, thanks for posting it.......
It brings back memories, In 1976 I was in the 8th grade and in the drama class. I sang / spoke "The Ragged Old Flag" in front of the entire school. I can still recite the entire song verbatim, but it means a lot more to me now.....
FWIW, I was a hit!
This is the original version sung by Johnny Cash

and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the
service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the
love and thanks of man and woman."
