flag day is June 14

Today, as we celebrate Flag Day, I can’t help but think about how the stars and stripes have led our brave soldiers into every battle our country has fought, how our flag was proudly displayed on the surface of the moon, raised in honor during the Olympic Games, and draped across the caskets of those lost as they protected us and our freedoms while serving in our military or as first responders.

BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – As a proud American, the flag of the United States of America holds a sacred place in my heart.

Today, as we celebrate Flag Day, I can’t help but think about how the stars and stripes have led our brave soldiers into every battle our country has fought, how our flag was proudly displayed on the surface of the moon, raised in honor during the Olympic Games, and draped across the caskets of those lost as they protected us and our freedoms while serving in our military or as first responders.

While our flag represents our great accomplishments, it also represents the tremendous sacrifices of so many brave men and women, in the fight for everything that we as American’s hold near to our hearts.

Woven into the fabric of our flag are our American ideals, valor, purity, and justice.

As such, I believe we have a duty to honor the flag of our great nation as it represents the very freedoms that bind us together making us the great nation we are!

While just one day each year is set aside for Flag Day, today I’m asking that you wake up every morning and display your American flag as a proud member of this country in honor of those who have fought to preserve it, protect it, and defend it.

God Bless America!

– Sheriff Wayne Ivey
