Fire cadets' flag ceremony: Honoring America at 5 o'clock on the dot

KBAK/KBFX photo

Each day, Monday through Friday, at exactly 5 p.m., the cadets of the Bakersfield and Kern County fire academies march into a courtyard.

They get into perfect formation and then methodically take the American and California flags off the pole, fold them, and put them away for the night.

The ritual is something not seen by many. It is a beautiful display of precision and teamwork.

Watch the video to see the daily ceremony.
