Two questions come to mind. First, were the Webelos leading the group in a
flag ceremony? If so, they become a detail and should keep their hats on.
Secondly, who's to say whether the Sgt. at Arms is really up on his flag
etiquette, or if he just failed to remind the Webelos to remove their hats
before the pledge was recited?

outside. I'll say it again, your head only needs one cover. Either a roof,
