Epworth Boy Scout Troop #32 celebrates Memorial Day by adorning Veteran’s graves with flags.
“Seeing these boys makes me have hope. I hope someone will put a flag on my grave when I am gone.”
Those were parting words of Korean veteran Billy Acton after he and about 15 scout members placed American flags on veteran graves at Crestlawn Cemetery in Ducktown, TN.

The boys fought early evening thunderstorms and hail to herald in a weekend of respect for those who have sacrificed for our country.

Ragged flag that the Boy Scout Troop #32 is responsible for “retiring” after their official use on a veteran’s grave.
