“Tribute to John Hubbell”

It is with a heavy heart that I want to inform all of John Hubbell’s skydiving family that we lost him on August 19th, 2012 in an antique tractor accident. John had been jumping since his graduation from jump school in 1955. He served honorably in the 11th Airborne Corps. After the Army, he graduated from Purdue University with a degree in Agricultural Science. John farmed all of his life and supplemented his income by working at Chrysler Corporation in New Castle, Indiana. Those of us who jumped with John every week over these years are going to miss him. John’s zest and love for life will never be forgotten by those of us who were lucky enough to know him. Blue skies, John, and Fly free!

CSM Greca

Today in history: September 3, 1777 The American flag is flown in battle for the first time, during a Revolutionary War skirmish at Cooch’s Bridge in Delaware.

The American flag is flown in battle for the first time, during a Revolutionary War skirmish at Cooch’s Bridge, Maryland. Patriot General William Maxwell ordered the stars and strips banner raised as a detachment of his infantry and cavalry met an advance guard of British and Hessian troops. The rebels were defeated and forced to retreat to General George Washington’s main force near Brandywine Creek in Pennsylvania.

Three months before, on June 14, the Continental Congress adopted a resolution stating that “the flag of the United States be thirteen alternate stripes red and white” and that “the Union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new Constellation.” The national flag, which became known as the “Stars and Stripes,” was based on the “Grand Union” flag, a banner carried by the Continental Army in 1776 that also consisted of 13 red and white stripes. According to legend, Philadelphia seamstress Betsy Ross designed the new canton for the Stars and Stripes, which consisted of a circle of 13 stars and a blue background, at the request of General George Washington. Historians have been unable to conclusively prove or disprove this legend.

With the entrance of new states into the United States after independence, new stripes and stars were added to represent new additions to the Union. In 1818, however, Congress enacted a law stipulating that the 13 original stripes be restored and that only stars be added to represent new states.

On June 14, 1877, the first Flag Day observance was held on the 100th anniversary of the adoption of the Stars and Stripes. As instructed by Congress, the U.S. flag was flown from all public buildings across the country. In the years after the first Flag Day, several states continued to observe the anniversary, and in 1949 Congress officially designated June 14 as Flag Day, a national day of observance.
