Watch the following video story of my grandfather, Hubert Eaves,  from Des Moines, Iowa, in the year 1916.   At eleven years old, Hubert Eaves refused to salute the American flag in school for many reasons including 

racial injustice as well as religion.  



Whether we agree or not on saluting the American flag, I support the right to be able 

to choose.

"I'll Salute the Flag, as the Flag Salutes Me."


"That Flag is a Dirty Flag ​​

that will not Protect its Citizens."
