Show Your Patriotism with American Flags

Updated on November 27, 2014

A Great Place to Help You Show Your Patriotism

Hi! This lens is about American flags, patches, and magnets that you can find at MJ's Depot - an eBay store with a variety of items. MJ's Depot is a small town store located in Hawthorne, NV on the road between Reno and Las Vegas. The store also sells patriotic items on eBay. It's a great place to find what you need to show your patriotism. Stop in to visit if you're ever in Hawthorne.

Hawthorne is known as "America's Patriotic Home". The people in the community are very supportive of those who serve our country. The community celebrates Armed Forces Day as a way to thank those who serve. More than once the traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall has come to Hawthorne. At the north end of town the rest area has been designated the Veterans Memorial Park. A big flag flies there when the weather permits. In the park are several stones carved with the names of veterans from the community. A museum on the main street in town is dedicated to the support the ammunition depot provided in wars being fought since World War II.

A patriotic store fits in a community like this, but since the town is small, the store has broadened it's base by offering items on eBay. Besides patriotic items many army surplus items are available. Check out MJ's Depot online or if you're ever in town.

      Loved the John Wayne patriotic video. And I show my patriotism by voting and teaching my children to vote.

      I am posting on the day before Memorial Day. Very appropriate for this season when we should be honoring and remembering our Vets.

      We will be showing our Patriotism this Memorial Day weekend and remembering those who gave their lives for our country. MJ's Depot sounds like a great place to purchase Patriotic Merchandise.

      You have some great new stuff on this lens! I especially enjoyed the Youtube video of Robin Williams as the American Flag. It was so funny and it inspires to me to try to fly the flag more often.
