Flag Day Tuesday June 14th

In the United States, Flag Day is celebrated on June 14. It commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened on June 14th in 1777 by resolution of the Second Continental Congress. The United States Army also celebrates the Army Birthday on this date; Congress adopted "the American continental army" after reaching a consensus position in the Committee of the Whole on June 14, 1775.

"The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not."-- Thomas Jefferson

In addition, so that I would never forget the date, I got married on Flag Day!! Been married for 46 years now and have NEVER forgotten the date!!! Therefore, I have never been lowered to a status lower than dog poop for forgetting our anniversary!!!!
