Memorial Day Good Turn at Jefferson Barracks
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), May 19, 2019 - For more than six decades, approximately 5,000 Scouts have gathered at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery prior to Memorial Day to decorate each of the 150,000 graves with an American Flag.

Check-in for the Memorial Day Good Turn tradition, Sunday, May 25, hosted by the Gravois Trail District, runs from 11:30 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. The procession from Beasley Elementary to the cemetery will begin at 12:30 p.m. Upon check-in, the unit leader will receive a unit participation ribbon. Participants should plan to walk 2 - 3 miles, carry water and use sunscreen. Plan on Parking in Sylvan Springs County Park on Sheridan Rd.

The public is welcome to attend the event. Scouts from across the council assemble at the National Guard base and march into the cemetery where they proceed to the main flagpole near the center of the cemetery for an assembly and ceremony. A surprise guest speaker will address the crowd.

Scouts will honor those who served our country by raising the American Flag and then lowering it to half-mast as Scout buglers play "Taps." Scouts who earned the rank of Eagle Scout - the highest rank in Scouting - during the past year will serve as the color guard. Scouts and leaders will then decorate each grave in the cemetery with a small American Flag. It takes just two hours for Scouts to place more than 150,000 flags, which are provided by the cemetery.

In 1866, Jefferson Barracks was established as a national cemetery and today is one of the oldest interment sites of the National Cemetery Administration, Department of Veterans Affairs.
