Hail to the Chief

We at Our Dad’s Flag would like to send our thanks to the President, Mr. Stephen Colbert, of The Colbert Nation and all his folks at The Colbert Report for supporting the Our Dad’s Flag project.

He is the President of Colbert Nation, a wrangler of “truthiness”, as well as the host of Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report, Colbert Super PAC leader and famed author of “I Am A Pole (And So Can You!)” as commented on by the late-great Maurice Sendak as “The sad thing is, I like it.” (P.S. Dad and Mom have agreed that there’s really no need for us to show our kids the page about the “dancer” pole page.)

Need more Colbert?

Tune in to Comedy Central. Log on to  www.colbertnation.com. Follow him on Twitter @ColbertReport  or @StephenAtHome (some trending topics #Colbert, #StephenColbert.)

It’s not something we totally planned on, but we feel inclined to share a chapter of our family history . . . Here’s a priceless moment as our family takes leave with “Our Dad” – he surprised the kids at the airport for his two week leave from Afghanistan. Mom can’t figure out the embedding so use this link: http://youtu.be/2l-JYqz-B5w

Again and again, and again, thanks for reading!  We are having a great time with our flag project and have so many incredible visits coming up … you must stay tuned!  Follow us via email, like us on Facebook (although mom’s still trying to figure that all out – help Mark Zuckerberg!) and get your most up-to-dates via tweet.
