In 1993 retired Col. Dave Olds, who was with the Boy Scouts of
America, commissioned Rebecca J. Huseby to write and perform the inspiring "Blaze of Glory" song for the official flag burning ceremony (when
a flag becomes damaged, torn, faded or stained). And while Col. Olds received
Blaze of Glory's original recording, the song officially received
its copyright from the Library of Congress in 2003.
"Note the first line of the song - no, it has not been altered! Lord have
mercy on the Old Red, White and Blue!" Rebecca Huseby
A longer version of the
song is available at
Spirit Wing Music by clicking on the "Remember You" CD link.
