The journey continues to Badger Boys State! Once complete at Fort Polk, LA, the flag was sent to be flown during the 77th session of Badger Boys State! Badger Boys State (@badgerboysstate) is a program sponsored by the American Legion that brings almost 900 boys from all over the state of Wisconsin, and brings them together to learn about how the government is suppose to function, campaigning and elections, leadership, appreciation for the military and our veterans, and most importantly, they learn more about themselves than ever before. They form city, county, and a state government after they run for specific elected positions and then start passing legislation applicable to their level of government. The program is facilitated by over 100 volunteers who give up 8 days of their lives each June; they leave their jobs and their families, to ensure that this week is unforgettable. Badger Boys State is a phenomenal program and we are excited to announce that we will be sponsoring 3 additional boys to attend Badger Boys State 2019!
This photo was taken on Wednesday, June 13, 2018 with all of the counseling staff and citizens of Badger Boys State! Everyone (almost 1,000 people) comes together during the middle of the session each year to form the state of Wisconsin! The remaining time of the week, the flag was hung in the City of Lewis, in Durkee County.
On Monday, the flag will depart Wisconsin and the United State to head to the United States Embassy in Kyrgyzstan! Thank you for your continued support and stay tuned for more! 🇺🇸
