Den 2 learns about the American Flag:

Den 2 spent the day going over the Opening Flag Ceremony and learning some cool things about the US Flag...Here are some things they learned.  1) Name the only place where the US flag is NEVER lowered.  2) Why is the US Flag "backwards" on some military uniforms?  3) Why is the top blue corner of the US flag called "the union"?  3) Is it alright for the flag to be carried flat during football/baseball games (i.e. the huge flag that the stadium sometimes carries in and then shakes to make it look like it's blowing in the wind).  Care to learn any of these answers?  Track down a Tiger and ask him!

During the meeting, the den leader dug out some of his old army gear and the cubbies got to wear different pieces of the field gear during the ceremony...they did awesome!
