Class: U.S. Flag History

Class: U.S. Flag History

Last Friday, the Corps was given a class on the U.S. flag history and etiquette during residential life. The class and follow-on discussion provided an education on the history and customs and courtesies that surround the national colors with the focus of the discussion being directed towards the highlighted character trait of respect. Cadets discussed and explored why it was important to respect not just the flag itself, but the ideals and historical significance that the flag represents. Cadets learned about the Federal Law (Chapter 1 of Title 4 of U.S. Code) that governs the treatment and display of the national colors and were asked why they thought it was important to respect the national colors in light of all they had learned about its history and significance.
