Cummings Plumbing Heating and Cooling receives Certificate of Commendation for Patriotic Display
Tucson, AZ.: On Thursday, May 3rd, Kevin Cummings, Owner of Cummings Plumbing Heating and Cooling, received a Certificate of Commendation for Exemplary Patriotism in the display of the Flag of the United States of America from The National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution.
In March 2018, Kevin purchased a new flagpole to show his patriotism; a symbol of the American Dream. Since then, the United States flag has flown proudly at Cummings Plumbing Heating and Cooling; standing at 80′ tall and visible from quite a distance. “I’m going to repeat what I said last time,” said Kevin. “Whenever I drive to our office and see the flag, I’m reminded of what this great country is about: the American dream. It’s about us coming and working together to make something great happen. This nation is the land of freedom and opportunities.”
Elaine Lee, Office Manager of Cummings Plumbing Heating and Cooling, said, “We were really surprised when the representatives of The National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution arrived and presented us with this certificate of commendation. We were not expecting it. It’s such an honor to be recognized for doing something that we are proud to do.”
About The National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution: In 1876, there were many celebrations to commemorate the centennial of the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. As part of this patriotic fervor, a group of men in the San Francisco, California, area who were descendants of patriots involved in the American Revolution, formed an organization called the Sons of Revolutionary Sires. Their objective was to have a fraternal and civic society to salute those men and women who pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor to the battle for independence from Great Britain. The Sons of Revolutionary Sires desired to keep alive their ancestors’ story of patriotism and courage in the belief that it is a universal one of man’s struggle against tyranny – a story which would inspire and sustain succeeding generations when they would have to defend and extend our freedoms. Out of the Sons of Revolutionary Sires grew the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution, which was organized on April 30, 1889, the one-hundredth anniversary of the inauguration of George Washington as our nation’s first president.
About Old Glory – the Official United States Flag: The U.S. flag is a strong symbol of American identity and national pride. Also called Old Glory, The Star Spangled Banner, or simply The Stars and Stripes, the U.S. flag has a colorful history and has undergone many changes since the first official flag of 1777. The stars are a symbol of the heavens and the goals to which humankind aspires; stripes are symbolic of rays of light from the sun. Thirteen stripes represent the original thirteen colonies that declared independence from England; fifty stars symbolize the current 50 United States. White signifies purity and innocence, red signifies valor and bravery; and blue signifies vigilance, perseverance, and justice.
