185th explains significance of the flag

SERGEANT BLUFF, Iowa (KTIV) -- With all the fun that comes with the Independence Day weekend, the real meaning of the Fourth is sometimes forgotten.

Today in Sergeant Bluff, the 185th Refueling Wing showed folks at the Embassy Rehab and Care Center what this weekend is about.

They let Old Glory fly through the singing of the National Anthem and even explained to the crowd the significance of the flag.

Staff Sergeant Alex Raveling said, "With the 13 folds and explaining everything. It means a lot to us. It's everything we fight for when we're overseas."

Raveling says, the real joy comes from showing everyone all what the armed forces really stand for.
