This Badge Of Red
Posted On: 2021-03-12
EQUIPMENT: RED cloth, and American Flag and Wolf Badges
CUBMASTER: There are symbols of citizenship everywhere we look in church, school, hospitals, and courts. But, there is a more significant symbol that we all see -- Old Glory (hold up the flag). But the flag itself is not just a symbol -- the colors also tell us of American history.
The color red (hold up the red cloth) in the stripes represents the blood of the wounded in America's efforts to stay free. It also represents the first of freedom kindled in the hearts of those patriots that forged America in 1776.
Tonight, you Wolves, also share in the pride of the red of our flag. The Wolf Badge you earned over the last few months is also red. When you look at your uniform after tonight, be proud that you share in the tradition surrounding the color 'red'.
Mom/Dad, please present this Badge of Red to your son.
