Today is Flag Day, a nationwide event to celebrate the United States flag. It is observed on the second Monday of May every year. Historically it was a commemoration of the day that soldiers from the Continental Army crossed the Delaware River in what was called The Seven Years’ War. In essence the United States became an empire in the end, and the confederates gave us the symbol of freedom, liberty and democracy as an emblem for their own sacrifices.
In order to mark this day, many organizations and groups have gotten together to throw events all over the nation. Some of the main ones include: The American Legion, The Armed Forces Association, Veterans for Foreign Wars, The Veterans of Foreign Wars, The National Football Foundation, The Professional Order of the Flag (PO Flag), The Queens Association, The Navy Department, The Air Force Association, The Marine Corps League, and The Sergeants Association of America. All of these organizations have their own particular website where they list their flag day status for the year. In addition many of them will also post upcoming events.
On my personal happy flag day status, I will be participating in the Annual Flag Day Parade in Washington D.C. which is organized by the US Army Corp of Engineers. I am excited about this because I love the fact that we have a group of men and women in uniform parading around our nation’s capital as it marks our nation’s birth. We all want to be a part of this special day, but with budgetary constraints, most of us are unable to be out in the field participating in events when they are scheduled. For us it is much more important to make sure that we are raising the morale and the enthusiasm levels amongst our own citizens so that we can continue to protect our freedoms and protect the American way.
What I will do on the day is to share a bit about my experience on what I consider to be the biggest day in our nation’s history. If you are an Indian American and you want to join in participating, then there are a few simple steps that you need to take. First of all, you can join the American Insurgency Veterans of Facebook page or the Twitter hash tag; both of which are free to join. Once you do this, you can then access a special page where you will have the opportunity to interact with other veterans from all across the country.
This is just one of the ways that you can stay in touch on your favorite topics while taking part in a very interesting event. What is the purpose behind joining the American Insurgency Veterans of Facebook and the Twitter hash tag? If you are asked the question “What is your flag day status?” It is simple and short answer; its to show your support for the soldiers in our country and to let those who wear the uniforms know how much you care.

On the other side of the coin, if someone from another country asks you what is your happy flag day status, then you may wish to explain the meaning behind it. When I ask people such a question, they typically will not have an easy time because their first question might be “What does the flag mean?” When you talk about the meaning of things, you have to take time to really get into the details. You can also use the two social networks that are available online to make friends with people who might share the same interests as you. I hope that you will enjoy the many benefits that you will derive by taking part in these types of activities.
