Amen.....
Our Scout Troop and the St. Louis Council as a whole placed 150,000+ flags at each of the gravestones at Jefferson Barrack National Cemetery on Sunday so they would be in place for Memorial Day Monday. Sobering to walk among the gravestones and read them. Many are for whole aircraft crews during WWII and even Korea that were shot down and never recovered. Even ship's crews or a portion thereof are represented/memorialized. Majors next to Sergeants, Colonels next to ensigns, all equal regardless of rank.....

Hi Mark

This is the most touching Memorial Day remembrance I've ever seen. I posted it in our forum a few years ago. Harry

Thanks. Saw a number of people, sitting on blankets or beach chairs, at a gravestone. Touching...
