In RHEL, how do you get commands contained within a script to print to the screen, instead of just the output of the commands

That will show the contents of the script at the start.
If you would like to show each line as it runs do

bash -x script-name

(the -x bit means show each command just before running it)

Another way is to run the script without executing the commands, ie:

bash -nv script
