Celebrate Flag Day on June 14th
Flag Day is a day for Americans to celebrate and show respect for our flag. Our flag is a representative of our independence and our unity as a nation. It has a proud history. The flag was at the head of every battle fought. Many people died protecting it. It even stands proudly on the surface of the moon. As Americans, we have every right to be proud of our culture, our nation and our flag.
