Happy Thanksgiving!

Today was a special day for our "Lone Scouters" (cub scouts and boy scouts) in Addis. The day after Thanksgiving, the boys were able to learn about the American Flag, what does it mean, how to take care of it and also how to hang and fold it. The group was also able to "raise" the flag above the US Embassy with the Marines.

Eli's American Flag now has a certificate that it has been flown above the US Embassy Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. It was a neat ceremony and we wanted to share with you.

We thought it was a wonderful way to end our American Thankgiving Holiday. Hope yours was great too!

As rough and tough as the Marines can be, they love doing stuff like this, especially at the Embassies. Great photographs!
