This Minute is meant for Boy Scouts, Webelos scouts.
Who can tell me what day falls on June 14th?
That's right it's Flag Day.
Another question, why do we celebrate Flag Day on June 14th?
Because it was on that day in 1777 that our nation got its first official US Flag. The Continental Congress which made the laws in those days, specified that the flag would have 13 stripes, alternating red and white, and 13 white stars on a blue field.

Our flag was born very soon after we became an independent nation, and millions of people have fought for the flag as our symbol of freedom.

That's why I hope your family owns a US Flag, and you will fly it proudly on Flag Day and on the other appropriate days through the year. In that way, we can show our pride as Americans and our determination to live as free men.

In a similar show of pride, each patrol should have and display their patrol flag at our troop functions. A patrol flag shows unity and organization. If your patrol does not have a patrol flag, there's a fun project for your patrol to do this month.

Did you try it and like it?             Or hate it?
