How to Fold the US Flag

Scouts are going to make mistakes from time to time, but they should always do their best to be respectful.
A Simple Flag Retirement Ceremony
When retiring a United Stated flag, some people will say that you must do it this way or that way, but according to the Flag Code, it just needs to be done with dignity.
