President Woodrow Wilson declared June 14 a holiday back in 1916. In honor of that declaration, the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library celebrated Flag Day by giving visitors a flag with their admission.

Several families took advantage of the historic day and historic act by learning more about our nation's 27th commander in chief, and for one soldier and his family, the day had an extra special meaning.

"It's great to drive around and see all the flags and everything, and they've got the flag set up here in front of the museum and stuff so it means a lot to us," said Staff Sgt. Anthony Varner.

Varner says the flag and the day take on special meaning to military families, and he's glad to be able to celebrate at Wilson's library.
