Memorial Day

Honoring Those Who Serve

Each Memorial Day weekend, Scouts, Leaders, and citizens of the Mid-South come together to pay tribute to the heroes of our military at both the National Cemetery and the west Tennessee Veteran's Cemetery. Thousands of Scouts take part in flag placements which is spectacular to see. Each of these flag placements incorporate programs to remind Scouts of the sacrifices made by each member of our Armed Forces.
