Dublin VA Flag Day ceremony set for June 14

Dublin VA Flag Day ceremony set for June 14

 

Dublin, Ga. – The Carl Vinson VA Medical Center will host its annual Flag Day ceremony June 14 at 8:30 a.m. on its front lawn to honor the nation’s most sacred symbol.

The ceremony will include an official flag-raising by the Dublin VA Police Department Color Guard and musical accompaniment will be provided by VA nurse Wanda Wilcher. Vietnam veteran Gus Allbritton will lead the Pledge and Chaplain David Julian will read “Old Glory.”

Celebrated on June 14, Flag Day commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States by the Second Continental Congress on June 14, 1777. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day and in August 1949, National Flag Day was established by an act of Congress. Although U.S. law prescribes the display of the Flag and Flag Day by statute, Flag Day is not an official federal holiday and is observed at the President’s discretion by presidential proclamation.

VA medical center director Maryalice Morro noted that the ceremony gives everyone a chance to reaffirm their patriotism.

“Flag Day is a great opportunity to render honors to our national colors in the proud tradition of our military services. Hosting this event gives us an opportunity to join with our community to show our national pride in the ultimate symbol of our patriotism,” Morro said.

VA communications director Dr. Frank Jordan invited everyone to join VA staff and veterans in honoring the national standard.

“This brief ceremony is a great way to get your day off to a patriotic start and take a few minutes to remember the importance of our national symbol. We certainly hope that everyone will join us,” Jordan said.

Jordan said that the VA hopes to see the event grow each year, and he especially encouraged youth participation.

“To really honor our veterans and our flag, we have to sustain our patriotism from one generation to the next, and to do so we have to get young folks involved in events like this one. We’re hoping that parents will bring their children and that groups involved with youth will load them up and come out to salute our flag,” Jordan said.
