On 19 September 2022, the Colonel James Wood II Chapter of the Virginia Society Sons of the American Revolution conducted a Flag Retirement Certificate presentation to the Girl Scouts of Troop 14040. Several of the scouts and their leaders participated in a flag retirement certificate presentation ceremony on 14 June held at the Ruritan Club grounds in Clear Brook, Virginia. At this ceremony, the 13 stripes of a flag, representing the original colonies were separated with the Girl Scouts Ainslie Jenkins, Madison Gogdin, Taylor Chouinard, Abby Rambo, Chloe Smith, Hannah Smith and Katie Jenkins each presenting stripes and the blue union for burning to Makenna Moore in the order of the States ratification of the United States Constitution. The leaders of the troop assisted in gathering worn flags to be retired. The SAR presents a Flag Retirement Certificate to those individuals who participate in the appropriate retirement of the flags. A presentation ceremony was conducted at Daniel Morgan Middle School with a color guard composed of Dale Corey, Thomas "Chip" Daniel, Kelly Ford and Brett Osborn. Osborn gave a presentation on the SAR and the upcoming 250th Anniversary of the Revolutionary War. The National colors were then presented for the Pledge of Allegiance. CJWII Chapter President Daniel and Flag Committee Chairman Ford then presented certificates to each of the Scouts and the leaders who participated in the 14 June ceremony. The leaders included Michelle Chouinard, Heather Gogolin, Katie Jenkins, Jessica Moore, Regina Nischan, Cindy Sirbaugh and Jenna Smith.
