Post 2001 has partnered with the national Stars for Our Troops organization to send stars from retired American flags to veterans as a remembrance for their service. Cub Scout Pack 1500, which is sponsored by Post 2001, volunteered to help with the project.
Each Cub Scout was given one of the flags that have been sent to the Post for retirement. The Cubs and their families assembled in the Brambleton Middle School to cut the stars from the flags. By the end of the evening 3000 presentation packets were prepared.
One grandfather, who helped cut out the stars, was presented one of the packets by his grandson in remembrance for his service on the USS Coral Sea off the coast of Vietnam. We are so proud to honor those who have risked their lives for our safety and show our appreciation through this gesture.
