The Fourth of July was traditionally celebrated as America’s birthday, but the idea of an annual day specifically celebrating the flag is believed to have first originated in the 1880s. June 14 is most commonly known as ‘Flag Day’, but some may know it as ‘Flag Birthday’. Joining Joel Markel, president and founder of Preferred Home Health Care and Nursing Services and Marianne Levy is David Thomas Roberts. He is discussing the importance of flag in the United States, when the flag was made official, why it is so important to have a day dedicated to the flag and how a flag supports the greatness of the country. Plus, he is talks about his newest book on stores and on the internet.
