Hon­or­ing our coun­try’s flag

The Phoenix - - COMMUNITY -

Ni­cholas Wood­ley and Matthew Berry, fourth-grade stu­dents at Lincoln Ele­men­tary School, re­ceived some vet­eran in­struc­tion on the proper way to fold our coun­try’s flag. Billy Wor­rell was pick­ing his grand­daugh­ter up from school when he no­ticed the boys who are mem­bers of the school Safety Pa­trol try­ing to fold the flag. As a vet­eran of the Navy, mem­ber of the Amer­i­can Le­gion Honor Guard at vet­er­anS’ fu­ner­als and a Scout Mas­ter for 13 years, he was will­ing and able to pass on the tra­di­tion of how to prop­erly fold our coun­try’s flag to the next gen­er­a­tion of our coun­try’s lead­ers.
