    Great story that inspires patriotism.

    The story from this book is guaranteed to make you swell with pride for the good old USA. It's about a Boy Scout Troop that got it's American flag to fly on a space shuttle mission. I've read both this 1996 edition and the 2004 edition of the book. I like the 2004 edition better because the 1996 version is a novel that approximates the true story, whereas the 2004 edition is the true story. You still may not believe it, the story is so amazing. The 1996 version is out of print.
