Flag Day Celebrates Honor & Tradition

In the early days of a fledgling nation, a group of brave souls gathered in a room filled with anticipation and resolve.  It was June 14, 1777, and their mission was to forge a symbol that would embody the spirit of their newfound freedom—a flag that would unite them in their quest for liberty and justice.

With steady hands and determined hearts, they unfurled the first official flag of the United States—a canvas adorned with thirteen alternating red and white stripes, and thirteen white stars on a field of blue.  As the flag fluttered proudly in the breeze, it became a beacon of hope and inspiration for generations to come.

Fast forward to the present day, and that same flag still waves majestically, symbolizing the enduring values that define our nation.  Every year on June 14th, Americans come together to celebrate Flag Day—a time to honor the legacy of our flag and the ideals it represents.

But Flag Day is more than just a commemoration of a piece of cloth—it’s a celebration of the principles that unite us as a people.  It’s a reminder of the sacrifices made by those who have defended our flag on battlefields around the world, from the Revolutionary War to the present day.

As we raise our flags high and sing patriotic songs, let us also take a moment to recognize another important occasion—the Army’s Birthday.  For it was the brave men and women of the Army who have stood as guardians of our freedom, defending our flag against all who would seek to harm it.

From the frozen fields of Valley Forge to the sands of distant shores, the Army has been a symbol of strength and resilience, answering the call to duty with unwavering courage.  Their sacrifices, too numerous to count, have ensured that our flag continues to fly proudly over the land of the free and the home of the brave.

So as we gather with friends and family to celebrate Flag Day, let us also take a moment to salute the Army and all those who have served in its ranks. Their bravery and dedication have helped to shape the course of history, ensuring that our flag remains a symbol of hope and freedom for generations to come.

As we commemorate Flag Day and the Army’s Birthday, let us honor the sacrifices and legacies they represent. At MdE, Inc., we invite you to join us in remembering the courage and dedication of those who have served and continue to serve our nation. Together, let us raise our flags high and pledge to uphold the values they embody. Happy Flag Day, and happy birthday to the Army!
