TOM’S BLOG | JUNE 14TH

Today is the nationwide observance of Flag Day, honoring the Stars and Stripes.  On May 7th, 1937, Pennsylvania became the first state to establish the June 14th Flag Day as a legal holiday.  President Woodrow Wilson, in 1916, and President Calvin Coolidge, in 1927, issued proclamations asking for June 14th to be observed as the National Flag Day.  It was not until August 3rd, 1949, that Congress approved the national observance, and President Harry Truman signed it into law.

Happy Flag Day!
