2021 Memorial Day Flag Placement

May 29, 2021

The Memorial Day Flag Placement is scheduled to take place at local National Cemeteries across the mid-state on May 29th. This is truly one of the most moving experiences in which a Scout can participate, along with their family, so please make plans to take part. Our U.S. soldiers that have given their lives so that we may enjoy our freedoms must be remembered, and the Middle Tennessee Council is proud to help make that happen each year. We will place a U.S. flag on the grave of every marker across the cemeteries, and recognize the sacrifice each of these men and women made for our country. For more information please click here.
