Because of You Old Glory Flies is a collection of heartfelt poems and illustrations to say thank you to all who have served, or currently serve in the United States military. In creating this book, Julie Dueker and Ray "Bubba" Sorensen II, a.k.a. The Freedom Rock Painter, have combined their unique talents and passions for God and country to show America's heroes we are forever in their debt. They pray this book touches the hearts and lives of those who open it and share it.

"I'm impressed with Julie's work to capture the essence of hero. There are heroes all around us and some we would never know served in our nation's military to defend the rights and privileges that we hold dear. We can never repay them enough for all that they and their families have given to the rest of us. Many are in cemeteries across our land and overseas. Some didn't return at all. Others live quietly in our communities continuing to give of themselves for the good of others. America's greatness lies on the backs of our veterans and those who serve today. They have fought and died for us. I believe Julie's works depict that very well."
