President Woodrow Wilson declared June 14 as Flag Day in 1916, and Congress designated it an official holiday in 1949. The date goes back to June 14, 1777, when the Second Continental Congress approved use of the flag as the symbol of the United States. 🇺🇸
Remembering the fallen today on June 6, 1944. 75 years since D-Day where favor swung back to Allied forces. This monument is at Freedom Park honoring the 32 Vets from Mecklenburg County who died that day. #TheGreatestGeneration #MayTheyNeverBeForgotten
Some of our wonderful neighborhood board members placed American flags all over Amity Gardens this week.
These flags are for Memorial Day 5/27, as we remember those that gave their lives for our freedom, Flag Day 6/14, and celebrating our nations birth on July 4th. #LongMaySheWave
