Today, June 14, is Flag Day - Fly it proudly - its more important than ever!

June 14 is officially designated as “Flag Day.”  Flag Day 2016 is made even more important due to the Orlando Terror/Hate Crime attack.  At this time, all U.S. Flags should be flown at half-staff.

We continue to pray for those attacked so brutally in Orlando. We will remember the victims and their families. They will not be forgotten. Please take action in your own way against acts of terror. There are active things to do to combat hate and violence. Remember that we all are our brothers keeper.

June 14, 1777 is the date that Congress officially adopted our nation’s flag.
The U.S. flag has been modified 26 times since its adoption in 1777. Today's 50-star flag, created in 1960, has been in use the longest. Check out: Flag Day 2013: 9 things you never knew about the American Flag for interesting reading/facts sbout this day and the American Flag.
