Message from Sheriff Wayne Ivey
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – As a proud American, the flag of the United States of America holds a sacred place in my heart.
Today, as we celebrate Flag Day, I can’t help but think about how “Old Glory” has led our brave soldiers into every battle our country has fought, how our flag was proudly displayed on the surface of the moon, raised in honor during the Olympic Games, and draped across the caskets of those we lost as they protected us and our freedoms, while serving in our military or as first responders.
While our flag represents our great accomplishments, it also represents our tremendous sacrifices in the fight for everything that we as American’s hold dear – liberty and justice for all.
Woven into the fabric of our flag are our American ideals, our values, our rights and our responsibilities.
As such, I believe we have a duty to honor the flag of our great nation not just today, but each and every day of the year as it represents the freedoms that bind us together, making us who we are…the single greatest nation on earth.
God Bless America!
– Sheriff Wayne Ivey
