Flag Day - In 1777, the Second Continental Congress adopts the the flag of the United States by proclamation.
U.S. Army - In 1775, the United States Army was established to defend our Nation. 235 years! Happy Birthday to the United States Army!
California - In 1846, Californios, as they were known then, declared their independence from Mexico thus paving the way for eventual statehood in the United States instead of remaining the domain of Mexico and suffering the fate of a third-world, socialist, kleoptocracy.
Not a bad day. Not a bad day, at all
