Local Scouts Show Patriotism With Pictures

Longhorn Council Scouting units have a rich history of providing community service and Duty To God And Country, especially during patriotic holidays.  You can find them posting flags, retiring flags, or taking part in parades during holidays.  This year for our July 4, 2020 Independence Day Holiday we have asked our Scouting units to send us pictures and “Show Us Your Patriotism.”  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic it is more difficult for our Scouts to be out and about in the community but lucky for us they have plenty of pictures to share from previous events.  Please see the first units to submit their pictures below, then follow the link at the bottom of this article to see ALL units represented as they send us more pictures through this 4th of July.  Thank you to these LHC Scouts for showing us their patriotism in pictures.

Happy 244th Birthday America.  Enjoy the patriotic salute via pictures from our Longhorn Council Scouts!

We start off with Crew/Troop 445 and Pack 399 showing us their Patriotism.

In their own words, 

“These were taken near Waco, Texas last May 2019, before social distancing. A fishing campout at a local farm included training for flag ceremonies as part of our rank advancement.  A veteran/dad directed that activity.”
