Summertime is upon us and a couple of holidays that go right along with Summer, are Flag Day, June 14, which commemorates the adoption of the American Flag, and also July 4, which is the day we celebrate our independence as a nation.

Regardless the holiday, or ceremony, it is important to know how to properly fold and store the American Flag.  It's also important to know why we take such steps to do this properly.  It is a time-honored tradition that has been passed down over many years to properly show respect not only for the flag, but respect for what and who that flag represents.

Watch this video carefully and use it as your own personal guide of how to fold your own flag when it is time to store it properly.
