As the nation and president debate which actions indicate respect for the American flag and/or
Fourth graders Nicholas Woodley and Matthew Berry, recently received some inpromtu instruction on the proper way to fold our country's flag.
U.S. Navy veteran Billy Worrell was picking his granddaughter up from school when he noticed the boys, who are members of the school Safety Patrol, trying to fold the flag.
As a veteran of the Navy, member of the American Legion Honor Guard at veteran funerals and a Scout Master for 13 years, he knows a little bit about the subject.
Luckily, he was willing and able to pass on knowledge of how to properly fold our country's flag to the next generation of our country's leaders.
"The citizenship shown by both young and old is just one more reason to say Proud to be from Pottstown," said Community Relations Director John Armato.
