The NFL kicked off Sunday night's Super Bowl LIV with a moving tribute to the American flag.

The video tribute featured Marine Lance Cpl. Kyle Carpenter, who served in Afghanistan in 2010 and is the nation's youngest living Medal of Honor recipient, and Johnny Cash's recording of "Ragged Old Flag."

The tribute also featured "First Ladies of the NFL," the wives who own NFL teams.

What are the details?

The tribute featured Carpenter and the NFL wives talking about the American flag, which they say is the nation's "most precious symbol of freedom."

Cash can be heard reciting "Ragged Old Flag" over historic American news clips and dramatic reenactments of historic events such as 1815's Battle of New Orleans.

During one portion of the tribute video, Carpenter can he heard reciting parts of the Declaration of Independence.

He can be heard saying, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

The moving tribute ends with Carpenter concluding, "God Bless America."
