Scouts across the nation are joining together with their communities to solemnly remember the events of September 11, 2001, and those who lost their lives.
One example is in Grand Rapids, MI, where a motorcade of local police, fire units, and the Patriot Guard drove through the community yesterday as a precursor to the annual September 11 anniversary.
The procession escorted Wounded Warriors and the American flag to the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum for a flag ceremony where Scouts and others gathered in remembrance.
This morning, Scouts of the President Ford Field Service Council led the annual Scout Salute to commemorate the anniversary.
Since 2002, Scouts have honored our nation and remembered those who lost their lives during this all day ceremony from sunrise to sunset. Open to the public, the Scout Salute welcomes members of the entire community to join in saluting the American flag.
