Happy Flag Day 2022

On this date June 14, 1777 by resolution of the Second Continental Congress, the American flag was adopted. It is also on this date that Congress adopted the American Continental Army, making it the birthday of the U.S. Army. It was first nationally recognized in 1916 by President Woodrow Wilson through a proclamation, and established in 1949 by an Act Of Congress.

On this date we celebrate a banner, but more than a piece of colored cloth. We recognize the purity of the intentions of our founders, the real blood shed for the American idea of freedom, and the nobility of the declaration that all men are created equal. We carry out their belief in the right of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

On this date we are so thankful that God has blessed America. We have seen many battles, and numerous victories, yet all of them were under the same banner. I am thankful to live in a country founded on the pursuit of freedom, and the hope of a better tomorrow.
