Flag Day 2020: Celebrating The Flag As It Represents Our Great Country

The American Flag represents the United States of America.

Flag Day is the celebration and recognition of the Flag, a day when all Americans should reflect on the values of our great Republic, be thankful for our freedoms, and be appreciative of the men and women in uniform who defended the Flag throughout our history. 

My father, a WWII Navy UDT frogman, my older brother, a soldier in South Vietnam, and I, a sailor on an aircraft carrier during the Vietnam War, all served under the Stars & Stripes. 

And to my delight, my daughter was born early - on June 14th, Flag Day.
