the flag is folded...
and presented to the appropriate family member.

  • Kneel, on one knee, in front of  the flag recipient and solemnly present the flag to the recipient.

  • Present the flag using the veteran's military service preferred wording:

    • Army ... This flag is presented on behalf of a grateful nation and the United States Army as a token of appreciation for your loved one's honorable and faithful service. (Note: President of the United States isn't an official reference in the Army flag presentation.)
