Happy birthday, Stars and Stripes: Why June 14th is Flag Day

by Jacquie Kubin

Flag Day, June 14, is the day the United States officially adopted the Stars and Stripes. It is the birthday of our American flag.

Most Americans, however, may not even realize there is a holiday to commemorate our flag. It is not an official federal holiday, so Americans may wonder what meaning does the day truly have?

The day of June 14 is historic because the Continental Congress passed an official resolution on June 14,1777, “that the flag of the United States be 13 stripes alternate    red and white; that the Union be 13 stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation.”  (CONTINUE READING ALL THE WONDERS OF HISTORY HERE)

When I enlisted my first duty assignment was a flag detail. The US Army at Ft.Campbell gave us a US Navy Pamphlet with  A cover that showed Marines in Dress uniform carrying Our Flag in parade. We were  responsible for everything except the stuff  related to the USMC. The young Lt assigned our  detail showed up late--I think under the influence--and angry because the duty had interfered with his social life. He began  saying stuff about our detail--and our Flag and I  tried to assault him.The School Commander took pity on me and refused to  proceed with  inquiry .I still feel I'd do the same-today.

After I was honorably discharged  I  displayed a flag patch inverted  during the dog and pony show Congress made of the IMPEACHMENT of Bill Clinton.The Assistant Pastor didn't know nothin' about my military service--and he was ignorant of the US Flag code as well -- he didn't care to be  educated and I ended up kicked out of the church choir because I refused to take off my vest.I'd do the same --we have one Worse than Clinton  in Obama. In my opinion. I cut down my colors the day the National news announced that Obama had been reelected.I love my country and that Old Glory --but I cannot allow any to think He and I represent the same Country--or Flag  -or Constitution and Laws---we do NOT. The man who traded five enemy  we had secured  for a nut job who deserted his post in Afghanistan -the man who has allowed the invasion of our Country along our Southern  border.The man who embraces Islam while penalizing the Christian.. NO! Obama's America --and the one I served for eight years as an enlisted Medic are not the same Country IF/ when America elects a real American  as President--and Our Constitution and Laws  are again defended and respected by our Government including the majority on the US supreme Court I will again post colors--but NOT while this is a Queer , Muslim Brotherhood /Communist  and Secular State.
