I love our national anthem and will never miss the opportunity to STAND with my hand over my heart and sing along at the top of my lungs. I have known the words since I was a young boy. We were taught it and knew it well...or so I thought.

I found it very interesting watching this video that tells the story of how our anthem came to be. It takes us inside the mind of Francis Scott Key as he wrote the lyrics to The Star Spangled Banner. Check out the video and learn an little history you may not have known.

Don't forget to come honor those men and women who fought for that banner with our 2nd Annual Auction for Honor Flight Northern Colorado coming up on Veterans Day. You can get all the details here.
