As you are reading this, our Memorial Day Ceremony is behind us. As a group, our Association extends a huge THANK YOU to all of the residents of CCC. Your support is very important to us, I also want to take a moment to say THANK YOU to our Honor Guard and Color Guard for their hard work in conducting this ceremony. It’s an important day in the lives of all Veterans and your dedication is really appreciated. A special thanks to Billy Schools who coordinated this entire event.
With Summer upon us, our Veterans Association will be taking our normal summer break. Our next meeting will be Monday, September 20th, 2021. Please keep in mind, even though we will not be meeting, many of us will still be around if we are needed. I encourage everyone to visit the CCC website, Veterans section, often. We are trying to keep this updated with articles and information to help Veterans and their families. Also, for your convenience, our officers phone numbers are listed.
Monday, June 14th, is Flag Day in the United States. Even though it is not a National Holiday, we celebrate this day each year to honor the United States Flag and commemorate its adoption. On June 14th, 1777, the Continental Congress replaced the British Grand Union Flag with a new design that we know today as the National Symbol of the United States of America. However, Flag Day did not become official until August 1949, when President Harry Truman signed the legislation and proclaimed each June 14th as Flag Day.
Now would be a good time to check your US Flag. If it is faded, ripped or torn, please replace it. If you
need assistance, ask any of our Veterans for help. We have new 3X5 Flags you can purchase for $18.
And please, dispose of the old flags properly. There is a collection box inside the Exercise Room.
Again, we hope all of you have a great summer. We look forward to seeing you in the Fall.
For GOD and country,
