CQ Thanks American Veterans For Their Sacrifice

CQ flies the flag that defied the terrorists at the Pentagon on September 12, 2001. Thank you to all who serve or have served our nation by laying your lives on the line for our freedom and safety.

This flag now hangs in the Smithsonian Museum of American History in Washington DC.

Special thanks to our fathers:

* Edward T Morrissey Sr, Army, Korean War - 1951-53 (now Admiral Emeritus at CQ!)

* Paul Flesch, USMC, World War II (1944-45), Korean War (50-52?), deceased 1991

And a happy belated birthday to the men and women of the Marine Corps, which celebrated its 230th anniversary yesterday. Semper Fi!
