Today is FLAG DAY

Today is FLAG DAY, a day when we Americans commemorate the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened on June 14, 1777 by resolution of the Second Continental Congress.
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.
Today, all 50 states stand together united as one under our flag.  Many American heroes have made the ultimate sacrifice defending that flag...let's fly her proudly as we proclaim, 'Long live the United States of America...the land of the free and the home of the brave.'
