To the Editor:
June is here and that means we will be celebrating Flag Day, Friday, June 14. The day is for all Americans to celebrate and show respect for the flag.
This day was officially established by proclamation May 30, 1916, by President Woodrow Wilson. But it was not until Aug. 3, 1946, that President Truman signed an Act of Congress designating June 14 of each year as National Flag Day.
Our flag is representative of our independence and our unity as a nation. “One Nation Under God, Indivisible.” Our flag has a proud and glorious history. The Sons of the American Legion Squadron 46 is extremely proud to be able to sponsor the city flag project and have our flags flying throughout the city.
This year’s flag theme is “Honoring All Who Served and are Serving.”
As Americans we have the right to be proud of our culture, our nation and our flag. So raise the flag today and every day with pride. — Al Stencel, adjutant, Squadron 46, Sons of the American Legion, Little Falls
