Its Flag Day and the Armys birthday. I wonder if Barack and Michelle will send a shout out about the importance of this day, like they did to Michael Sams when he kissed a man on national TV. See below from Allen B West:
Today, Saturday 14 June, 2014 is one of those special days for American patriots and Soldiers. It is a day intertwined in the uniqueness representative of the greatness and exceptionalism of America. Today is Flag Day and also the 239th birthday of our United States Army. The Army was established on this day in 1775 and its motto is simple: This Well Defend. Our Soldiers do not take an oath to an individual, they take an oath to our Constitution. The Army has a long and distinguished history in service to our nation. From our start in the Revolutionary War to today in Afghanistan, men and women have passed on an impeccable legacy of service, sacrifice, and commitment. They have stood on freedoms rampart to provide the promise of liberty, freedom and a better future, to so many across the world. The only ground our Army has ever asked for from other nations is just enough to bury our dead.
Was it in “The NewsPapers”???????????????????????????
Unless its homo pride day, they wont waste their time
If she was reminded, she’d probably say, as she did before...”all this for a stupid flag!” (...and I will NEVER forgive her for that)
Has anyone checked to see if either the hammer and cycle or the Al-Qaeda flags are flying over the Casa Blanc?
He wasn’t in the military...he wasn’t born here - doesn’t care about the sacrifice since 1775...and every conflict since to include the Cold War where men were ready and did their time...naaaaa, he has no association with our great traditions....never has - never will...
The only flag Queen Barry cares about is the rainbow flag.
I wonder how many people have done this since Obama has been in office.
Today is also the 60th anniversary of the addition - “Under God” to the pledge of allegiance.
Barry will issue a selfie.
thanks for the heads up.
He’s golfing in Palm Springs, recovering from the rigors of the office. /sarc
I strongly suspect he does not know, and if he knows; he does not care.
He will continue to trample on it as he has always done.
June 9, 2014, A Proclamation by the President of the United States of America - Over farmlands and town squares, atop skyscrapers and capitol buildings, the American flag soars. It reminds us of our history - 13 colonies that rose up against an empire - and celebrates the spirit of 50 proud States that form our Union today. On Flag Day and during National Flag Week, we pay tribute to the banner that weaves us together and waves above us all.
For more than two centuries, Americans have saluted Old Glory in times of trial and triumph. Generations have looked to it as they steeled their resolve, and an unbroken chain of men and women in uniform has served under our flag. From the banks of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor to European trenches and Pacific islands, from the deserts of Iraq to the mountains of Afghanistan, they have risked their lives so we might live ours. When we lay our veterans to rest, many go draped with the stars and stripes upon them, and their families find solace in the folds of honor held tightly to their chest. Because of their sacrifice, our Nation is stronger, safer, and will always remain a shining beacon of freedom for the rest of the world.
With a familiar design that has evolved along with a growing Nation, our flag stitches the ideals for which America was born to the reality of our times. It reminds us that fidelity to our founding principles requires new responses to new challenges. As we prepare to meet the great tests of our age, let every American draw inspiration from this symbol of our past, our present, and our common dreams.
To commemorate the adoption of our flag, the Congress, by joint resolution approved August 3, 1949, as amended (63 Stat. 492), designated June 14 of each year as “Flag Day” and requested that the President issue an annual proclamation calling for its observance and for the display of the flag of the United States on all Federal Government buildings. The Congress also requested, by joint resolution approved June 9, 1966, as amended (80 Stat. 194), that the President annually issue a proclamation designating the week in which June 14 occurs as “National Flag Week” and call upon citizens of the United States to display the flag during that week.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim June 14, 2014, as Flag Day and the week beginning June 8, 2014, as National Flag Week. I direct the appropriate officials to display the flag on all Federal Government buildings during that week, and I urge all Americans to observe Flag Day and National Flag Week by displaying the flag. I also call upon the people of the United States to observe with pride and all due ceremony those days from Flag Day through Independence Day, also set aside by the Congress (89 Stat. 211), as a time to honor America, to celebrate our heritage in public gatherings and activities, and to publicly recite the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this sixth day of June, in the year of our Lord two thousand fourteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-eighth.
Well, if you think about it, an 18-hole golf course does have 18 flags!
