National Days

Flag Day and U.S. Army Birthday

Celebrating Liberty in more than one way — honor the flag and wish the Army a happy 243rd!

Today is Flag Day, celebrating the anniversary of the adoption of our flag by the Second Continental Congress on June 14th, 1777.

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 as American Patriots display and pay honor and homage to our national flag. We believe the celebrity protests against our flag — and by extension our nation — are a frontal offense against the honorable service of all who have served under our banner and their families.

Take time to read about the history of our flag and learn more about proper flag etiquette and protocol.

We encourage you to obtain copies of “I’m Your Flag” for elementary school children in your family and community. As Medal of Honor recipient Leo Thorsness noted, “It is a fitting tribute to our national banner and a great resource for young Americans.”

Flag Day serves as an annual reminder to replace your flag with the highest-quality American-made U.S. flags, available from our Patriot Post Shop.

Today, we also observe the founding of the United States Army in 1775. As the Army and its fellow service branches continue to lead the way defending Liberty, join us in prayer for our Patriots standing in harm’s way and their families awaiting their safe return.
