A civilian's perspective on life in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba
Sunday, March 10, 2013
Perched high on a hill and proudly flying 24 hours a day, this flag overlooks all of Guantanamo Bay.
Each morning at 0800, our national anthem blares over loudspeakers that are positioned all over the entire base. And each day around 1900 (this time changes based on the setting sun), evening colors plays to signify the closing of the day.
I don't tire of this daily ceremony as it serves to remind me of how proud I am to be an American.
