Though Greenwood wrote this song in 1983, it didn't become a big hit until Desert Storm in 1991, when radio stations embraced it to help boost patriotism. The song re-entered the country charts in 2001 after 9/11.

Thanx Barb...My dad was awarded a Bronze Star in WWII. He spent 5 years serving...I love our country and what it stands for originally. I want to be more proud of our actions politically...Just a great song and sentiment...And for anyone who has not driven across our great land...please do!

A very interesting thing happened when I was getting ready to publish this post. I had gone through some pictures and I chose the construction worker holding the flag well, at the last minute I changed my mind and decided to go with a darker picture that was still patriotic and had the words GOD BLESS THE USA. Those of us who post on a regular or semi-regular basis have to Preview our post...I mean you absolutely MUST PREVIEW. Well guys, I had my mouse over PREVIEW when all of a sudden, there it was....under Offbeat...........the construction worker holding the flag, not the GOD BLESS THE USA....I sat in total SHOCK coz I thought someone else had posted it but then I looked and saw Steve Irwin cuddling the crocodile and I knew it was MY POST...I sat here behind my keyboard with a BIG GRIN on my face and I said: OK God, guess you didn't want the darker picture even if it had YOUR name on it....and you SURPASSED the PREVIEW so you must've REALLY wanted this out there. Yep, when GOD wants something DONE RIGHT HE DOES IT HIMSELF :)
