[R] Default Format for Dates?

Is there anyway to preset date formats? I have a date from a cover.dbf that is shown as this:
> cover$FINALREPOR

[1] "2003-06-24"

The numeric value in cover$FINALREPOR is 12227. I'd rather not create another vector to hold the properly formatted date.

When I put this in a WordPerfect merge, I want the date to be June 24, 2003. I could take care of the problem in a WordPerfect macro but I'd rather do it as an R default date format if possible.

I researched some of this in the archives, FAQ's and manuals but didn't find anything that met my need. I would imagine that this type of question is probably an FAQ but I didn't find it.
