Cub Scouts learn flag raising skills on the flightdeck!Waring Hills Oct 23, 2009
Over twenty Cub Scouts and their parents assembled on the aft flightdeck of Yorktown on 21 October to learn about the United States national flag, what the colors, stripes and stars stood for. They also learned to stand at attention and the proper presentation of the colors, how to raise and fold the flag, and how to serve as a color guard and master of ceremonies for presentation and retiring of the flag. It was a windy program, but the flag did not get away from the scouts. Pack 59’s tiger den led by Den Leader Bobby Cummings arranged for the trip and the cubs were able to complete several of their scouting requirements for advancement. Great job scouts!
