Proud to do flag duty

As the oldest group of kids in the school, certain responsibilities fall to us. One of those includes flag duty.  To teach us about proper flag folding and handling protocol, Mrs. Stephens asked Chief Warrant Officer Shaw , a CCA parent and naval officer, to teach us the basics. We learned the history of the flag, why we fold the flag the way we do, and how to handle the American flag properly. Did you know that the American flag is folded like a triangle to represent the three pointed hat that the revolutionists wore? Learning about the flag taught us to respect it more. Each day we handle, raise, and lower our flag with respect and gratitude.
