ROBAR Guns wants to celebrate two great holidays, Flag Day and Father’s Day, with specials for our customers.

Flag Day, observed on June 14, commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States. Some history:

in 1777 by resolution of the Second Continental Congress.[1] The United States Army also celebrates the Army Birthday on this date; Congress adopted “the American continental army” after reaching a consensus position in the Committee of the Whole on June 14, 1775.

As written at USflag.org:

Inspired by these three decades of state and local celebrations, Flag Day – the anniversary of the Flag Resolution of 1777 – was officially established by the Proclamation of President Woodrow Wilson on May 30th, 1916. While Flag Day was celebrated in various communities for years after Wilson’s proclamation, it was not until August 3rd, 1949, that President Truman signed an Act of Congress designating June 14th of each year as National Flag Day.

Father’s Day was first conceived and championed by Sonora Louise Smart Dodd. As written at the Independent Institute:

The first celebration of Father’s Day occurred in Spokane, Wash., on June 19, 1910. This was two years after the schoolteacher Anna M. Jarvis began campaigning from Philadelphia to establish a nationwide Mother’s Day.

 

Sonora Louise Smart Dodd conceived the idea for Father’s Day in 1909 while listening to a sermon endorsing the concept of a Mother’s Day. Dodd’s father, William Jackson Smart, had raised six children by himself after his wife died in childbirth. So strong was her desire to honor his strength of character and devotion that Father’s Day was intended to fall on his birthday, June 5, but it had to be postponed. A following Sunday was chosen because Dodd’s vision of Father’s Day included a religious service dedicated to fathers during which they would receive small gifts from their children.

. . .

In 1926, a National Father’s Day Committee was formed in New York City, but it was not until 1956 that the next significant step forward occurred: Father’s Day was recognized by a joint resolution of Congress.
