Nation’s flag: Symbol of strength, unity and freedom

(Continued)

CLAREMORE —

On Flag Day this year, the NJROTC upperclassmen will be at a leadership academy in Nevada, Mo., followed by a basic leadership camp for the underclassmen.
“There we will have morning formation and greet every day with the national anthem and raise the flag to her glory height so that she may watch over us and guide us,” Jasper said. “We teach our cadets how to respect the flag because of the love for country; the customs and traditions which surround the proper display and use of our flag; and when the flag should be flown at half-mast and how to do it properly.”
