...For Which It Stands

Today is our Flags birthday celebration. On 14 June 1777, the Second Continental Congress adopted the flag of the United States of America.

Flag Day - the anniversary of the Flag Resolution of 1777.

Flag Day was officially established by the Proclamation of President Woodrow Wilson on May 30th, 1916.

Flag Day was celebrated in various communities for years after President Wilson's proclamation, it was not until3 August 1940 that President Truman signed an Act of Congress designating 14 June of each year as National Flag Day.

Hi Doug... so happy to see you post something about Flag Day today. It seems to be a day that truly flies under the radar (sorry about the pun). And too many of our kids have no idea about the history and symbolism of Old Glory.

Hi Nina Hollander 

It is upsetting to realize that so few in our country are aware of our history and traditions and what men & women have fought for.

Hi Sandy Padula and Norm Padula, JD, GRI 

Many do not and it's up to the veterans community to educate the public
