[June 14, 2018] I’m taking a few minutes to remind everyone that today is Flag Day in the United States. Most folks here in the U.S. and abroad do not fully appreciate the association of our flag with patriotism and American values. But folks do acknowledge that today is important for our citizens who have remained free and are willing to free others when called upon.
Today is also the day the U.S. Army celebrates it birthday. You can read about it here on the U.S. Army webpage (link here). Most everyone knows that the United States was established declared independent of Great Britain on July 4, 1776, by the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Yet, the army was established on June 14, 1775 (a year before); an interesting little tidbit of information.
The official flag of the United States is a beacon of freedom throughout the world. It is no surprise for those of us that it symbolizes freedom and will continue to do so.
