Local Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts spent their Sunday afternoon on November 5 honoring military veterans by placing American flags on their graves at Mountain View Cemetery.
Scouts, their leaders, and their families from Packs 229, 30, 18 and 235, and Troops 235, 540, and 18, scattered out across the cemetery searching for markers which indicated that the individual buried there had served in the United States Armed Forces. While newer grave markers generally indicate who is a veteran, many of the older graves do not.
They placed about 1,000 flags carefully behind the markers on the graves throughout the cemetery.
