“STAR SPANGLED BANNER ESSAY CONTEST RESULTS”
In light of certain sports figures who deemed it important to not honor our Flag, our Country and our National Anthem by not standing and putting their hand over their heart when the National Anthem played. We launched the Star Spangled Banner Essay Contest which was open to Wounded Warrior Children( Youth) grades 5-10th to answer the question:
“Why do we salute (if Military) or put our hand over our heart (civilian) when The Star Spangled Banner is played?”
