Each year our local Cub & Boy Scouts decorate the over 180,000 graves @ Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery. The tradition was started by the by our local Boy Scout Council in 1951 and when my boys were in Scouts "The Annual Good Turn" was a highly anticipated event. Even before soldier son was old enough to be in Scouts he participated right along with the older boys.
Today we went over to the cemetery to admire the flags. It is an amazing and moving experience.
Memorial Day is more than just another 3 day weekend. Take the time to honor the ones that gave everything for their country and remember the soldiers that are serving today!
