Did you know today was Flag Day? Also, the birthday of the United States Army?

Well, many of my neighbors missed this history class or did not get the memo or forgot it. So, with that said let me say that National Flag Day commemorates the adoption of the Flag Act of 1777 an as well as the official flag of the United States on June 14, 1777. This was done by a resolution of the Second Continental Congress. The Flag Resolution stated, “Resolved, that the flag of the thirteen United Staes be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white, that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation”.

A little more history, in 1916 President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation, that officially established June 14th as Flag Day. Then to add a little more history on August 3rd, 1949, National Flag Day was established, by an Act of Congress.

Needless to say, I would be remiss if I did not mention that the U.S. Army Celebrates its birthday on June 14th as well. On this day in 1775, the Continental Congress authorized the enlistment of riflemen to serv the United Colonies and officially established what we now know as the U.S. Army. Well, if I count correctly this is the 249th birthday of the US Army. As an Airborne, Ranger, Infantry Captain I proudly celebrate these two events on the 14th of June every year.

Hi Endre:

Of course I knew Friday the 14th was Flag Day, but I was not aware the Army celebrates it's birthday on that same day.

This is such an important day.  The Elks national organization has a program that looks to the history of the US Flag.  I have attended it numerous times and it was educational and quite moving.

Hi Endre! I did know that and was actually at the beach on Flag Day. We saw many more of the beach houses flying the American Flag than we normally do. We always fly it at our house and our neighbor always flys his Clemson flag!
