Happy Flag Day 2023 from the CIBA Commander, Board Of Directors and all the staff here at The Combat Infantrymen’s Association.

Flag Day falls within National Flag Week, a time when Americans reflect on the foundations of the nation’s freedom. The flag of the United States represents freedom and has been an enduring symbol of the country’s ideals since its early days.

Woodrow Wilson issued a presidential proclamation calling for a June 14 commemoration in 1916, but it wasn’t until 1949, that Congress passed legislation as a national holiday. President Harry Truman signed the legislation and proclaimed June 14 as Flag Day in 1949.

In 1966, Congress also requested that the President issue annually a proclamation designating the week in which June 14 occurs as National Flag Week.
