How can I enable ongoing changes to a working USB flash drive installation of Ubuntu 12? I would like to be able to add applications/tools and be able to use them on subsequent boot ups to the flash drive.

Please make your question more clear. Are you interested to install new software on your USB installation? –  tuxtu Apr 15 '13 at 3:37

This depends on the way you created the USB flashdrive. If you used "Startup disk creator" it gives you the option to store the changes "in reserved extra space".

So:

  • get a USB stick that is big enough to store your changes,
  • then use "Startup disk creator"
  • load the Ubuntu ISO file that you downloaded from the Ubuntu site
  • the use the slider on the bottom of the window to allocate space of the USB stick for storing settings Make startup Disk
  • next time you boot with the USB stick, the changes and installations will remain there, provided that there is enough space
