Today is Flag Day.  It is a “forgotten” holiday in that it is not a federal holiday, so people don’t get off of work and almost all businesses remain open.  We do celebrate today.  This is the day in 1777 that Congress adopted the current American flag.

In addition, June 14 is significant in that it is also the birthday of the US Army.  Today marks the 242nd birthday of the US Army.

 

Our flag is a beacon of Liberty, a symbol of hope for all people who “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. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed — that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it…” On this Flag Day, we American Patriots display and pay homage to our national flag.
