California Cub Scouts - Serving Others

We are fortunate to share stories of service with so many great Americans. This story is no exception. Christian Asis is a proud father and selfless leader of Cub Scout Pack 705 in Dana Point, CA. Early on during the COVID-19 pandemic he needed a way to stay connected with his scouts and continue their development as servant leaders. He bought Kid's American Flag Build Kits for ALL of them and personally delivered them.

Each scout built and dedicated theirs to something greater they believed in...whether it be our American values or a deceased veteran in their families. The stories he's shared are up lifting and inspiring. Most recently, they've begun donating the flags to people in their lives who are serving others. From school principals to medical professionals to police chiefs, they are showing gratitude to their neighbors. Many of the veterans at Flags of Valor were Cub Scouts too once...and the lessons we learned as scouts helped inspire us to serve in the military and beyond.

Christian, we are grateful to you, your son Nolan, and all the scouts in Pack 705. Thank you for sharing your story of joy and hope with us, because together we can do more!

  • What a great story. I was inspired, a proud moment for all involved. I’m a good friend of your dad, Steve Asis…so I was fortunate to see this
    And….I’m a former Cub/Boy Scout myself. Congratulations!

  • I want to thank the entire team at Flags of Valor for their support and for the incredible job they do each and every day. The timing of your Flag Kits couldn’t have been better for the Scouts and families of Cub Scout Pack 705. This global pandemic forced us to suspend in person meetings and miss arguably the most critical part of our Scouting year (our big camping trip, our recruiting events, our advancement, etc.). Our leadership group was hoping to find a way to keep our Scouts engaged in some sort of traditional Scouting activity while promoting the values of Scouting and your kits were perfect!

    My Scouts had such a great time making these with their families and the opportunity to teach the younger Scouts about our flag while reinforcing the values with our older Scouts was incredible. The parents also enjoyed it as it was a great chance to pull kids away from electronics and create more one on one and hands on family time.

    I do want to make one thing clear, this effort wasn’t just my son and I… our entire Pack was involved but due to privacy concerns and the ongoing pandemic we were limited in the ability to share photos and hand deliver flags. I wish I could share some of the other photos of these young men proudly standing with their own American flags… they are inspiring and give me hope.

    The leadership group of Cub Scout Pack 705 is committed to doing our best to raise young men of character who are engaged in their community. We share many of the values of the team at Flags of Valor and work hard to ensure that our children see the importance in adhering to the Scout Law by being trustworthy, loyal, courteous, reverent, etc. We participate in the Pledge of Allegiance at every meeting and we practice flag ceremonies while learning proper flag etiquette. We recite the Scout Oath: “On my honor, I will do my best to do my duty to God and country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight”. Call me old fashioned but I think we’d all be alot better off if we lived that Oath.

    We hope everyone has a safe, healthy Independence Day holiday and that our country comes together to heal and improve. We are not perfect, we have work to do, but the promise of America is alive and well.

    God bless us all.

    Christian Asis on
