Flag Day & Army Birthday 2013

Happy Flag Day!

I was not sure exactly what flag day was so I looked it up. You gotta love technology, a world of information at your finger tips.

Flag Day is the day that the US adopted our flag way back in 1777. It is not a federal holiday and it is at the president discretion to whether to observe it or not. I found that interesting.  It is also on this day in The United States Army was adopted by congress in 1775.

As with any holiday I honor those in the 110th/35th Quartermaster and what better way to honor them than with this picture of my Dad in the Color Guard, standing proud representing and ready to fight for his country. A big thanks to all who stand proud behind our flag.

  1. I’ve read today is Army Birthday too – Have a wonderful Flag Day & Army Birthday – as I read the first post about the flag day today, my first thought was about your dad.

    • You have touched my heart, thank you for honoring my dad!

  2. He does look proud!

    • This is one thing I do know. He was very, very proud!
