I love this time of year, flags waving… everyone wearing red, white and blue… pretending it is not hot.
Each year our AHG troop participates in the local 4th of July parade. This is the perfect time for a PiPa who is working on the Our Flag badge to take the lead. Requirement #21 has the girl create a booklet of patriotic songs and teach them to a younger unit.
Here is a list to get you started.
“America, The Beautiful”
“Battle Hymn of the Republic”
“God Bess America”
“God bless the USA”
“The Caissons Go Rolling Along”
“This Land is your Land”
“The U.S. Air Force”
“The Marine Hymn”
“Star Spangled Banner”
“You’re a Grand Old Flag”
This list is by no means complete. If you know of others, please list them in the comments
NOTE: The requirements have been simplified here. Please be sure to read the full text in the American Heritage Girl handbook to make sure you fully understand the requirements.
