Members of the Judge David Campbell Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution conducted a flag dedication at a Hixson Middle School patriotic program. Phyllis Carter, First Vice Regent, stated the chapter's honor in presenting to the school a new American flag that had recently flown over the Capitol in Washington, D.C. Senator Lamar Alexander was instrumental in arranging the flag flying and providing the flag for this event.
Vickie Moore, Flag of the U.S. Committee chairman, challenged the students to learn the rules of conduct for use of the flag, how to respect it, and how to display it. Copies of The Flag Code were presented to the school to give to the students. During the program, veterans who were relatives of the students were introduced individually acknowledging their branch of service, rank, and whether active, retired, or veteran.
The Judge David Campbell Chapter was organized in May 1915 and is one of five local Chattanooga DAR chapters. Any woman interested in finding out more about how to become involved in the local DAR organizations can email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.tndar.org/~davidcampbell/.
