Military Flag Folding

Little Known Significance of Flag Folding Ceremony Revealed

Under the direction of Lt. Colonel Timothy Vaughn, Commander of The Army Cadets of California, a 10th Anniversary Observance of the 9-11 Attacks on America was held last Sunday at Crockett Park in Oakley, California with a military folding-of-the-flag ceremoney.

The flag was presented to an individual who accepted it on behalf of all Americans who were affected by the cowardly surprise Muslim attacks on unarmed civilians in New York City, Washington, D.C. and an intended one that ended in a field in Pennsylvania after the Muslims were overpowered by passengers on Flight 93 airmed at hitting either The White House or The Capitol Building in D.C.. That plane crashed in a field..Everyone on board were killed. Had it not been for the heroic actions of the passengers, that death toll would have been much higher.

This ceremony in Oakley was one of the only flag folding ceremonies that explained what each fold meant. Following that beautiful ceremony a man stated that he had two such flags that were presented to him, but this was the first time that he learned what the 13 folds meant.  For that reason, we are sharing this with our readers.
