NASHVILLE, TN Tuesday Jul.10.2007 /netmusiccountdown.com/ -- If you own an American Flag, you likely find that to be a soul-touching possession...so, imagine owning a flag that is tied to one of the most historic events of our nation...and you'll have an idea of what Gretchen Wilson is feeling these days.

Gretchen turned a performance date into a mini-vacation when she was booked to appear at the Kaneohe Bay Marine Corps Base on Hawaii¹s Oahu Island recently. Several of her band members toured Pearl Harbor, while Gretchen stayed behind to play with her daughter Grace on Waikiki Beach. When officials at Pearl found out Gretchen was performing on the nearby base, they sent her the kind of special, history-connected gifts we mentioned.

The officials sent Gretchen an American flag that had been flown over the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor, and get this, the flag contained a placard that indicated the flag was flown on June 26, 2007 - her birthday!
