Photo of the Week: The Stars & Stripes

Staff Writer

Two-hundred-thirty-nine years ago, the United States flag was adopted on this date — June 14 — and 100 years ago, President Woodrow Wilson issued a presidential proclamation establishing June 14 as national Flag Day. Today, we celebrate the red, the white and the blue!

This photo, taken by Larry McGuire of The Spirit, is from the flag retirement ceremony that was held by the VFW at Gobbler's Knob this past weekend.
