The Flag and Pledge of Allegiance. What do They Mean to Me?

Have you ever had to answer this question?

Last night, the St. Charles County Veterans Museum along with several local veterans were honored to judge an essay contest written by 7th and 8th grade students at Assumption Catholic Grade School in O’Fallon.  

The subject of the essay was; The American Flag and the Pledge of Allegiance.  What do they mean to a veteran and what do they mean to you?  Three finalists were picked from each grade.  The winners will be announced on Veterans Day at the O’Fallon VFW.  

Please contact the St. Charles County Veterans Museum Oral History project at or call 636-294-2657 for more information and lets’ talk. We want to hear from you because we know…Every Veteran has a story.
