Members of the Flag Detail Team at Lexington Creek Elementary School have become experts at folding the U.S. flag after receiving friendly instruction from U.S. Army veteran, Jim White.
Realizing that the month of September is known for symbolic holidays – including Labor Day, Patriots Day, Constitution Week, and International Day of Peace – White thought it was the ideal time to offer his service to the students.
He reminded the students how to carefully fold the flag into the shape of a tri-cornered hat, symbolic of the hats worn by colonial soldiers during the War of Independence. He then explained the significance of each fold. The students were appreciative of the instruction and looked forward to demonstrating their skills at upcoming school events.
