It's Flag Day.....observe it!
Today is Flag Day. For those who didn't know that, here's a brief history.....
In the United States, Flag Day is celebrated on June 14. It commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened that day by resolution of the Second Continental Congress in 1777.
In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day; in August 1949, National Flag Day was established by an Act of Congress.
If you have a flag and a place to display it, be sure to get it out today.
