Flag Day in Siouxland, Sioux City

15 Jun

June 14 is Flag Day. It doesn’t garner a big celebration like the Fourth of July, or Memorial Day or even Labor Day. There generally are not any parades or marching bands creating a lot of hoopla on this day. But many Americans celebrate the Stars and Stripes every day, in their own way by flying “Old Glory” at their homes. And standing when they see her pass during other celebrations and parades. For such a symbol, one would think there would be more celebration for Flag day, other than a nod and a feeling that when you see her flying overhead all is well.
