Flag Ceremony – Boy Scouts "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
The Star Spangled Banner LyricsBy Francis Scott Key, 1814 Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early lightWhat so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet waveO'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

The Story of Veteran’s Day Student Council Representatives
Caissons Over hill, over daleWe have hit the dusty trail,And the Caissons go rolling along.In and out, hear them shout,Counter march and right about,And the Caissons go rolling along.For it's hi! hi! hee!In the field artillery,Shout out your numbers loud and strong,For where'er you go,You will always knowThat the Caissons go rolling along.
Marine Hymn From the Halls of MontezumaTo the Shores of Tripoli;We will fight our country's battlesIn the air, on land and sea;First to fight for right and freedomAnd to keep our honor clean;We are proud to claim the titleof United States Marines.
Anchors Away Anchors Aweigh, my boys, Anchors Aweigh.Farewell to college joys, we sail at break of day-day-day-day.Through our last night on shore, drink to the foam,Until we meet once more,Here's wishing you a happy voyage home.
Coastguard We're always ready for the call,We place our trust in Thee.Through surf, and storm and howling gale,High shall our purpose be!"Semper Paratus" is our guide,Our fame, and glory, too.To fight, to save, to fight and die!Aye! Coast Guard, we are for you.
Air Force Off we go into the wild blue yonder,Climbing high into the sun;Here they come, zooming to meet our thunder,At 'em boys, Give 'er the gun! Down we dive, spouting our flame from under,Off with one terrible roar!We live in fame, or go down in flame. Hey!Nothing'll stop the U.S. Air Force!
