Join members of Skyway Post 9430 of the Veterans of Foreign Wars on our nation’s 233rd birthday for a salute to the American flag—all 27 versions that have officially represented the United States over the years. From the first 13-star flag authorized by Congress in 1777 to today’s 50-star flag, the presentation of each flag will be accompanied with the story of its symbolism in this moving and educational program for all ages.
