Symbols for the Folds of the Flag

The 1st fold of our flag is a symbol of life.

The 2nd fold is a symbol of our belief in eternal life.

The 3rd fold is made in honor and remembrance of the veteran departing our ranks, and who gave a portion of his or her life for the defense of our country to attain peace throughout the world.

The 4th fold represents our weaker nature; as American citizens trusting in God, it is to Him we turn in times of peace, as well as in times of war, for His divine guidance.

The 5th fold is a tribute to our country, for in the words of Stephen Decatur, “Our country, in dealing with other countries, may she always be right, but it is still our country, right or wrong.”

The 6th fold is for where our hearts lie. It is with our heart that we pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

The 7th fold is a tribute to our armed forces, for it is through the armed forces that we protect our country and our flag against all enemies, whether they be found within or without the boundaries of our republic.

The 8th fold is a tribute to the one who entered into the valley of the shadow of death, that we might see the light of day, and to honor our mother, for whom it flies on Mother’s Day.

The 9th fold is a tribute to womanhood, for it has been through their faith, love, loyalty and devotion that the character of the men and women who have made this country great have been molded.

The 10th fold is a tribute to father, for he, too, has given his sons and daughters for the defense of our country since he or she was first born.

The 11th fold, in the eyes of Hebrew citizens, represents the lower portion of the seal of King David and King Solomon and glorifies, in their eyes, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

The 12th fold, in the eyes of a Christian citizen, represents an emblem of eternity and glorifies, in their eyes, God the Father, the Son and Holy Ghost.

When the flag is completely folded, the stars are uppermost, reminding us of our national motto, “In God We Trust.”
After the flag is completely folded and tucked in, it has the appearance of a cocked hat, ever reminding us of the soldiers who served under Gen. George Washington and the sailors and Marines who served under Capt. John Paul Jones and were followed by their comrades and shipmates in the U.S. Armed Forces, preserving for us the rights, privileges and freedoms we enjoy today.

 

While this Memorial weekend I honor everyone who has served or is serving, I say a special thank you to my Grandfather and his four brothers who all served in World War II.

 My position on second amendment gun rights was widely supported at the Jacksonville Gun Show May 17, 2015. Individuals should have the ability to defend themselves and not have to rely on others for their protection. I am an avid firearms' owner and NRA Life Member, as well as a Marine veteran having served in Iraq, Kosovo and Liberia.

May 13 was National Peace Officers Memorial Day. Please keep the men and women who have fallen and their families in your prayers. Phil Law

Congratulations Jim Davis the new commander of DAV NC Onslow County Chapter 16. May 4, 2015. Jim Davis, a Marine veteran, was sworn in as the new commander of Disabled American Veterans local chapter. Davis is a Desert Storm veteran who currently has Lou Gehrig's disease, but he fights on for his brothers & sisters in uniform. 

Active military and veterans and their families all enjoyed the Jacksonville Jamboree May 2nd and a chance to meet and talk with Phil Law and his supporters.
