Governor honors the U.S. Flag and 246th birthday of U.S. Army
Pago Pago, AMERICAN SAMOA — Continental Congress
We also commemorate the adoption of the Stars and Stripes as the official flag of the United States. The American flag is a universally recognized symbol that stands for liberty, freedom, and equality for all; it is the emblem of the home of the free because of the brave.
As we celebrate the history of our nation, let us remember that our flag is marked by the blood of those who have died defending it. On behalf of Lieutenant Governor Talauega and our families, we thank our soldiers and veterans for their enduring commitment to defend our nation with unwavering resolve.
Happy 246th Birthday United States Army and Happy Flag Day!
