Marietta National Cemetery Flag Placement

Pack 565 Families,

Quite a few of our Cub Scouts joined other Marietta area Packs and Troops
for the Memorial Weekend flag placement ceremony at Marietta National
Cemetery this morning. Todd took some awesome photos. See attached. If
you would like a full size picture, send an email to Todd at webmaster@pack565ga.org.

We watched a nice (short) presentation that included some rifle shots and
taps. It's amazing how quickly Scouts can place over 18,000 flags in just
about a half-hour. After we finished our flags, we had donuts and coffee
back at the cars and we were all out of there by 10:00 AM.

Watch the evening news tonight on WBS. You won't necessarily see our Pack,
but I bet Adelaide White's Girl Scout troop will be on TV.

See you at our next summer function!
