Opinion: My promise to America
Although I was born elsewhere, this is now my country, this is now my flag and I will defend both no matter what the cost. I am not a hyphenated American, just American. I promise to stand, at attention with hand on heart, during the playing of the National Anthem or trooping (presenting) of the colors, and I will, in my own way, dishonor those who do not.
I promise to thank and honor those who have served past and present, whenever the opportunity arises.
My name is George Schofield — won’t you please join me.
