Honoring Fallen U.S. Troops In Afghanistan
August 27, 2021
A heart grabbing patriotic yard display on August 26, 2021 ... shows Old Glory somberly with eternal pride ... resting calmly at half-staff ... above statues of U.S. troops, first responders, and Lady Liberty ... rendering honors for a valiant one ... representing all who made the ultimate sacrifice going beyond self for our beloved United States of America.
The flag was lowered to half-staff in honor of the 13 fallen U.S. troops ... 11 Marines, 1 Soldier, and 1 Navy corpsman ... who were killed in Kabul, Afghanistan along with 18 U.S. troops being wounded on August 26, 2021 by an ISIS "complex attack" involving a suicide bomber detonating the explosives at the Abbey Gate of the Hamid Karzai International Airport ... followed by shooters firing at U.S. Troops and Afghanistan citizens. It was also the deadliest attack the U.S. military has suffered in over a decade.
Old Glory's half-staff salute also honors all the brave fallen U.S. troops and first responders along with all those wounded ... who ... answered the call ... to protect our great nation and fellow citizens in Afghanistan, Iraq, other foreign soils, and our homeland ... that was sparked by the brutal, deadly terrorists attacks on September 11, 2001.
