A Flag Day Luncheon

By | June 14, 2023

[June 14, 2023] I attended a Flag Day luncheon of local Veterans and their spouses two days ago. Annually, we kick off the Summer on the nearest Monday with a luncheon to celebrate our national flag, Old Glory. The event was unique because everyone there was an American Patriot and loved our nation and flag.

Attending such an event was easy. I put on a shirt and sports jacket and drove myself there. Yep, real easy. I was also the MC, and that was easy too. I recommend attending Veteran luncheons or any gathering of our Vets. They are usually pretty easygoing, will tell you war stories or how they caught the biggest fish, are respectful and polite, are often elderly, and keep their heads high because they know they did what others could not do. They helped keep our country free. They are clear-eyed and were probably once a real badass.

So, when you see an elderly Veteran with a cane or walker and saluting the American Flag, you can bet your bottom dollar they were always a person you could rely on. They are the people you would want in your foxhole once the crap hits the fan. They are our real Americans.

Happy Flag Day!

    Hi Gen. Satterfield, one question for you. How many attended the luncheon where you were the Master of Ceremonies? I’m sure it was well attended and very enjoyable. Let us know if you can disclose that info. Thanks.

      Hi Wendy! We had over 100 in attendance. The weather was beautiful and the meal was excellent. A real American Patriot owns the restaurant and made sure all went well for our group.

        Sir, thanks for getting back to Wendy so quickly. Nice attendance for a luncheon. And, I’m happy to know that there are still patriots out there who support our nation and our flag.

          Yes, Gen. Satterfield always seems to be in the middle of things in his hometown. I’m sure his neighbors are happy that he lives there. And, I’m also sure that if there were any problems with leftist, Democrat Party supported terror groups like BLM and antifa showed up that Gen. S. would be there to keep everyone safe.

    Best of the best. What is it like to know them? Well done, Gen. Satterfield, keep up the great work you are doing for us all and thank those vets you see, for us.

    ‘Attending such an event was easy. I put on a shirt and sports jacket and drove myself there. Yep, real easy.’ And so many think it is something hard to do or inconvenient or do not know (willful ignorance). Or maybe folks just don’t want to be bothered because they are throwing their anger at others because they used the wrong pronoun.

    Gen. Satterfield, you are fortunate. So many veterans, so many stories, so many to honor.

    Glad you enjoyed the luncheon. Wish I had been there to meet so many vets.
