Webelos I, Den 2 recently had the distinct pleasure to host several servicemen from the Willow Grove Naval Air Station at their den meeting. The visitors demonstrated the proper way to fold the American flag. The visit made it into the Willow Grove Naval Air Station Newsletter!

Aviation Electronics Technician 3rd Class Robert Powers and Lance Cpl. Kevin Martin of the Aircraft Intermediate Maintenance Department here demonstrated the proper procedures in folding the American flag to Cub Scout Pack 68, Bedminster, Pa.
