Meet Nate and Isaac. These two boys have a duty they consider to be very important and one day they went above and beyond to complete their task.
One rainy day at Coppergate Elementary School in Middleburg, Florida, the two safety patrol students braved the pouring rain to take care of the school’s American flag. The 11-year-olds were in charge of lowering the flag during school dismissal and despite a large rainstorm, the boys got the job done.
Said their school’s media specialist, Kim Miskowski, who got the pictures, “Not only did they bring the flag down, they also stood in the wind and rain and calmly completed the 13 folds. Then Nate protected the flag as he walked with honor and respect to retire it for the day.” The Facebook post has been shared over 1,400 times and the boys have been praised for showing such respect for the American flag Congratulations to the two boys for their patriotic act!
