American Legion commemorates Flag Day


American Legion vice commander Sherry Newton (R) and American Legion Auxiliary president Jan Stough visited local businesses on Flag Day Tuesday, June 14, handing out American flags, decals and a pamphlet explaining the code by which to display and respect the American flag. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day and on Aug. 3, 1949, National Flag Day was established by an Act of Congress.
