Mike Kessler, executive director of the national nonprofit youth education and service program for boys and girls, the Young Marines, announced a call-to-action campaign to more than 300 Young Marine units across the country to participate in the organization’s second “Raising Awareness to the Flag” initiative during national flag week in June.
The week of June 14 is designated as National Flag Week when the President of the United States will issue a proclamation urging U.S. citizens to fly the American flag for the duration of that week. Flag day is June 14.
Community organizations are encouraged to contact local Young Marine units when planning their Flag Day activities. To find a unit near you, visit http://www.YoungMarines.com and click on the “Find a Unit” link at the top of the national homepage.
