*I pull my truck into the back of the academy lot and park in one of the open spots.  I lean my head back to the headrest and yawn before I get out, lock the truck, and head over to the explorer shed.  It's hard to see this early in the morning, so it takes me a few seconds to find the right key and then unlock the padlock on the door.  I slide the door open and shake my head.  The shed is a mess, as normal.  There is all kids of paraphernalia lying around it, but toward the back, below a pile of member T-shirts, is the flag equipment.  I know that PD said that they were bringing the PD flag and the American flag, so I grab a SCFD flag and the state flag.  I also grab an extra set of gear for a CFU flag that I'm sure we'll be presenting.  By this point, Hale is out of the truck, so I hand her the flags, just so that I don't have to climb over all of the stuff on the ground two more times.  I sigh as I bend down and grab three flag harnesses.  I throw then toward the door before I grab two Pelican rifle cases on a shelf.  After bringing them out, I put them on my tailgate, along with the flag belts.  I open the cases and remove the polished chrome axes.  Both of them are shiny enough, so I go ahead and put them back into their cases and move the cases so that I can take a seat on the tailgate.  I take my phone from my pocket and fire off a text to Zach.*

 

"Hey Zach I've got a state and FD flag, plus three of our harnesses.  I got an extra for a CFU flag, and I got our axes.  Are you guys doing rifles?"

*I lean back into the bed of my truck and close my eyes for a few seconds as I feel my phone vibrate.  I groan and pick it up.  I see Dave's name on it, so I slide my finger across my phone and say hello.  Once I hear Dave ask what he needs to do.*

 

"Just come to the Academy like normal.  I'm waiting for some of the others to show up now."

 

*I look around and don't see anyone yet, so I lean back against the side of the truck bed while I wait.  I look up and watch as the sky gently begins to turn to blue while I wait for some of the older kids to arrive.*

*I laugh as I read Zach's message.*

 

"Holy Shit, 12 rifles?  Pretty sure we only need two...."

 

*I roll my eyes as I put my phone down.*

 

'Pretty sure I'm up now.'

 

*I'm reassured when I look down at my watch, as the kids still have half an hour to show up, which will give us enough time to rehearse a few times before they actually have to perform.  I look up as a set of lights fills the parking lot, so I go ahead and jump down from the tailgate of my truck to see if it's a kid or Dave.*

*I look over at Dave as he pulls into the parking lot.  Once he walks over to me, I nod and stand up from my tailgate.*

 

'Hey, man.'

 

*I lean against the side of my truck bed as Dave brings me over a bag from Dunkin' Donuts.*

 

'Thanks, man.'

 

*I take the bag and reach in, pulling out some kind of breakfast biscuit sandwich.  I take a seat again as I wait for some of the kids.*

 

'So before they get here, I'm thinking we're presenting the American Flag, the CFU flag, and our department flag.  PD will handle their flag and the state flag. We're carrying two of the chrome axes and PD's taking two rifles.  We'll go over the order and who's doing what once we arrive and get everyone together.  I'm waiting on Hale and Kyle to show up, because Kyle's on the US flag.  We're looking for four more, plus Eli and Sarah.'

 

*As my phone rings again, I pick it up and I see that it's from Zach.*

 

"Yeah, I assume we'll arrive 45 before the ceremony and at least get fire a run through."

*Arriving early like a few others I park my SS in the lot and take off my sunglasses as I head on into the station.  Still out of uniform, planning to change after seeing who is here first, I enter into the youth office and look around as I put my sunglasses into my purse.*

 

'Guess I'm early.  I'm going to go change soon.  Who is here so far?  Also need me to get anything on my way back from the lockers?'

*As Nick leaves, I roll over and fall asleep for a few more minutes.  Once my alarm goes off in another half an hour, I roll over and wait for a few seconds before I get up.  I pull my uniform out from the closet and start putting it on.  I leave my dress coat, my cover, and my gloves off to the side, putting only my shirt, dress pants, and tie on.  I head over and see that Kyle's awake, so I head downstairs and start cooking something for breakfast.  About an hour later, once we're ready, I grab my coat, cover, and gloves and bring them down to my car.  I hang my coat up on the hook in the back, and I leave my cover on the seat.  I tuck my gloves into one of the epaulettes and then I head to the front seat and start the car while Kyle jumps in the passenger seat.  I text Nick as we head toward the academy.*

*I pull into the parking lot after a fifteen minute drive or so, separated by a stop at a Krispy Kreme.  I park next to Nick's truck and I walk over to them, with Kyle bringing the donuts.  I take a few sips from a travel mug of tea that I made before I left the house while the guys assault the donut box.  I decide that I'll wait until some of the kids arrive, so that they can actually get a donut, considering that we bought it for them in the first place.*

 

'Hey Nick, what's the carpool plan?  Are you guys taking your van, or are we each going to take some of the kids?'

 

*I figure that it'd be a good time to ask, since we might as well have the cars ready before the kids arrive so that we can head to the ceremony early and get an extra long head start, if possible.*
