San Diego Veterans of Foreign Wars Post presented the veterans at La Paloma Nursing Home with a new flag on Wednesday, June 14 in honor of Flag Day. The facility will display the flag proudly in honor of all veterans.

Flag Day falls within National Flag Week where Americans reflect on the foundations of the nation’s freedom that men and women have fought to secure. The United States flag represents freedom and has been an enduring symbol of the country’s ideals since its early days.
