Vice President/Secretary and Director of Youth Programs Stacy Kehoe of the Greater Chattanooga Navy League Council and LT. CDR for the United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps and Frances Simmons Barker, an employee at the Tennessee National Armory off of Holtzclaw, spoke to Browine Troop 41008 at the Chattanooga School for the Arts and Sciences. 

They were invited by Brownie Troop Leader Sandra Affare to teach their second and third graders how to fold the American flag and learn about flag etiquette. As a part of their Celebrate Community Badge, they also conducted the flag ceremony.   

“It was an honor for our girls to see a female leader in uniform; Celebrating Community will be memorable because of the care and information shared by our visitors,” said Ms. Affare.

Brownie Ava M.J. said, "Meeting the Lt. CDR was awesome!  I had never seen a female in uniform before. It was also the first time I have ever actually touched an American flag and that was really cool!"

Brownie Sarah M. said that the most memorable lesson about the flag is to never let it touch the ground.
