Two Clay County students are being applauded for their show of respect for an American flag.
Nate and Isaac are safety patrols at Coppergate Elementary School.
When a storm brought heavy wind and rain last week, they didn't let it stop them from performing their flag duty.
They brought the flag down and completed the 13 folds -- while standing in the pouring rain.
Nate then protected the flag as he walked it inside to retire it for the day.
"This is what RESPECT looks like at Coppergate," school officials posted on Facebook. "We are so proud of Nate and Isaac for their responsibility, respect, devotion to duty, and love of country."
Many people applauded them on the Facebook post for their show of respect.
