Over the weekend, the crew of Scouts visited the United States Naval Academy and Natural History Museum. Monday, February 23, 2015, the Scouts headed to the headquarters of the Department of Defense: the Pentagon.

As the snow flurries in the capital subdue for a few days, the Report to the Nation delegates continue to take D.C. by storm. Read what our field reporter and Report to the Nation delegate Jillian Infusino said about the group’s Monday activities:

“Yesterday we spent a good portion of the day at the Pentagon. We had an awesome tour, followed by meeting with the Vice Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, lunch with the Director of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and concluded with another meeting with the Vice Chief of Staff for the US Army.

“After the Pentagon, we went to Arlington National Ceremony. We saw the Changing of the Guard ceremony and then presented a wreath on behalf of the Boy Scouts of America to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Our trip to Arlington ended with a visit to the Kennedy graves.

“We’ve all added to our coin collection on this trip! “
