Veterans demonstrate American flag folding at Riverfest
LA CROSSE (WKBT) — Military veterans demonstrated respect for the U.S. flag during a ceremony at Riverfest Friday.
Since the flag is one of the nation’s most revered symbols, veterans stress the importance of taking care of it.
“First and most important rule is that the flag should not touch the ground,” said Tom Hundt, the commodore for Riverfest 2006. “No part should touch the ground. That’s the one I see violated the most.”
Folding the flag correctly shows pride in being an American, and the demonstration showed the proper way to fold the flag, with an explanation of what each fold means.
Several veterans and military personnel participated in the ceremony.
