NEVER FORGET those who defended your right to fly the flag, pray to God and vote for a dedicated patriot.
August 1949, National Flag Day was established by an act of congress as a day to honor our flag.
Although one date has been designated as the day to honor our flag, the week of June 14 is usually established as Flag Week by proclamation of must sitting presidents.
Betsy Ross, the woman who hand-made the first flag, is usually recognized in formal celebrations of Flag Day.
The date is shared by another historic event, the US Army birthday.
