Veterans Day – We Honor Those Who Serve

Saratoga Flag takes great pride in participating in numerous Veterans Day Parades.   Please take a minute to view excerpts from the 2015 NYC Veterans Day Parade, where we marched with the Wounded Warrior Project and thousands of Veterans up Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.

We Honor Those Who Serve and have served, every day!

veteransdayparadeVeterans Day is an official United States public holiday, observed annually on November 11, that honors military veterans, that is, persons who served in the United States Armed Forces. It coincides with other holidays, including Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, celebrated in other countries that mark the anniversary of the end of World War I; major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, when the Armistice with Germany went into effect. The United States previously observed Armistice Day. The U.S. holiday was renamed Veterans Day in 1954.
Veterans Day is not to be confused with Memorial Day; Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans, while Memorial Day honors those who died while in military service.[

U.S. Mint Unveils the New Saratoga Quarter Coin

COMMEMORATING THE TURNING POINT OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION……

The New Saratoga Quarter Coin was unveiled today, in Schuylerville NY, location of the Surrender of the British Army, which occurred in 1777.

The Ceremony was held at Schuylerville High School, in Saratoga County, New York. The Saratoga Battlefield is just 10 miles South of the location of the Surrender.

Watch our video from the Ceremony….

At Saratoga in the autumn of 1777, American forces met, defeated and forced a major British army to surrender.  This crucial American victory renewed patriots’ hopes for independence, secured essential foreign recognition and support, and forever changed the face of the world.  The battlefield, a monument to the fallen and the restored country house of American General Philip Schuyler make up the three sites of Saratoga National Historical Park.  It was established as a national site in 1938.

2015 Saratoga National Historical Park (NY) Quarter reverse

The design depicts a close-up of the moment General John Burgoyne surrendered his sword to General Horatio Gates, a turning point many believe marked the ‘beginning of the end of the American Revolutionary War.’  Inscriptions are “BRITISH SURRENDER 1777,” “SARATOGA,” “NEW YORK,” “2015” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”  Design candidates were developed in consultation with representatives of Saratoga National Historical Park.
