An excerpt from the site: Bunkhouse Culture, Cowboy Code of Conduct:
 
 " F rontier guidelines for behavior were recorded under a variety of titles. Some of these include  The Code of the West,  Gene Autry's Code of Honor, Cowboy Code of Ethics, the Lone Ranger's Creed, and Roy Rogers Riders Club Rules.
So we decided to post our own version of it here for your consideration and perhaps adoption."

Read about the National Cowboy Flag Project here:

Currently 32 States fly the National Cowboy flag
 

"In 2008, this special flag flew to the International Space station, carried by  NASA Commander, Mark Kelly , aboard the Discovery space shuttle. This event was even covered in the Washington Post. U.S. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords returned the space flag to us after she carried it on horseback in the Rex Allen Days Parade that year."
 
 

"The National Day of the Cowboy flag also flies in England with the British Cowboys at Western Trails, and it flew in Iraq and Afghanistan with our Desert Cowboys while they were in service to America."
