    I sure hadn't....but got this email today from Steve Wilkes of the Patriot Guard. (If you haven't heard of the Patriot Guard, google them...awesome group of people!!) Anyway...here's what he sent:

    A US Marine vet stunned the political rally with this teachable moment. Never heard this before.
    Turn your speakers up!

    Most Australians don't even know the first verse of ours!

    Someone sent me that link yesterday - it is wonderful! It was nice to see the guys all take off their hats, etc. I get so fed up with people who don't stand at attention, talk during the singing of the National Anthem, just keep walking or doing whatever it is they are doing. Even if someone is not a citizen of this country, they could have the courtesy to be quiet. I lived in another country for 1 1/2 years and I was respectful of their National Anthem (which I also love). God bless this great country of ours!

    I had no idea there was a second verse. Thank you so much for sharing. I loved all the people standing and placing their hands over their hearts.
