Troop 1 participated in the POW/MIA memorial this weekend

posted Sep 9, 2012, 8:41 PM by Eric Hansen
On Friday night 7 Sept, Members of Troop 1 joined with other Troops in the area and several military support organizations to pay tribute through a night long vigil to the memories of POWs and MIAs.  They boys participated in a parade and learned about what POWs and MIAs were and why we must not forget them. The troop watched the movie War Horse and reflected on how it reminded them of POWs and MIAs.  After the movie, each patrol walked around the POW/MIA Memorial for an hour each from 1100 PM until 6:00 AM reflecting on the sacrifice, honor and courage displayed by the POWs/MIAs and their families.
