Veterans and Active Military, We Salute You!
With both D-Day (June 6) and Flag Day (June 14) coming up, it is the perfect time to show our appreciation for our service members. What better way to do that than to have some military memorabilia enshrined in a beautiful frame for posterity. Our military members do so much for us and our country, so we really want to show the love! Here's what you need to know about these upcoming holidays and how you can thank the veterans and active military members in your life:
D-Day was the day during World War II that the Allied troops invaded the beach in Normandy, France on June 6, 1944, to fight the Nazis. Thousands of ships and aircraft participated in the attack, code-named Operation Overlord. The attack included more than 160,000 troops, over half of which were American soldiers. The Allies were victorious in battle, and this marked a turning point in the war, leading to an ultimate Allied victory over the Nazis.
We celebrate Flag Day on June 14 because that date marks the anniversary of when our American flag was first adopted in 1777. It is a perfect day to recognize the military because it is also the day that our armed forces were established in 1775. Since its adoption, our flag has gone through a remarkable 27 official variations. With so many memorable flags in our history, you want to make sure that you display them in a respectful and appropriate manner. Check out this informative video for how to do it properly.
