Old Glory. The Stars and Stripes. The symbol of the greatest nation on Earth.

The American Flag.

While this iconic and historic symbol is most closely associated with the 4th of July, it still wave's over the mountains and the plains because of the sacrifice of men and women in uniform.

The flag has not silently waved. It's been torn and burned, tattered, ripped, spit on, bloodied.

Yes, it's a ragged old flag. But this Memorial Day weekend, the great Johnny Cash recalls the story of that 'Ragged Old Flag'.
