RES Learns Proper U.S. Flag Folding from Central High School Air Force JROTC

). Central High School Air Force Junior ROTC Cadets visited Roopville Elementary School to give instructions to students on the proper procedure for raising and lowering the Flag. Corps Commander Cadet Colonel Tyler Davis explained the importance of folding the Flag properly to create the triangle fold. Special care should be taken that no part of the Flag touches the ground.

The Flag is then carefully folded into the shape of a tri-cornered hat, emblematic of the hats worn by colonial soldiers during the war for Independence. In the folding, the red and white stripes are finally wrapped into the blue, as the light of day vanishes into the darkness of night. This custom of special folding is reserved for the United States Flag alone.

Central High School’s Air Force ROTC Unit is under the command of Lt Col Mike Washington and MSgt Henry Astudillo.
