A Scout Salute To Fallen Heroes On Memorial Day
Write a Tribute For a Fallen Hero
.
We are calling on Scouts across Duplin, Johnston, Sampson, and Wayne Counties to build on the tradition of honoring our nation’s fallen heroes this Memorial Day by posting public tributes to our veterans in partnership with the National Cemetery Administration and by participating in the National Moment of Remembrance with a special Scout salute. Follow the steps below to participate in this important effort: 

1. Write a Tribute for a Fallen Hero
.
Post at least one tribute message for a fallen hero within the  Veterans Legacy Memorial – a digital memorial that houses a profile for each veteran interred at a national cemetery.

Please consider leaving a tribute for one of the fallen heroes who has passed away during the COVID-19 pandemic – at a time when customary services and funeral honors cannot safely be performed. The names of those service members are listed on the  VA’s Roll of Honor  webpage and then copied and pasted into the search bar within the Veterans Legacy Memorial.

All tributes are reviewed by the VA before being posted so there may be a delay before your message appears on the page. 

2. Encourage Others to Write Tributes
.
Use the social-sharing feature at the top of the Veterans Legacy Memorial pages to tell your family, friends and neighbors about the fallen hero you selected and ask them to write their own tribute. 
.
Include   #ScoutSalute #NoVeteranEverDies  in your post.

3. Customize a Memorial Poster to Hang in Your Window
.
Fill in the name of the fallen hero you selected and place the Memorial Poster in a window in your home for all to see. 
.
The template is available to download at www.scouting.org/scoutsalute .

4.  Join Our Collective Scout Salute During the National Moment of Remembrance
.
At 3:00 p.m. local time on Memorial Day, every Scout should salute the American flag from their driveway, sidewalk, or home in Scouting uniform and say the name of a fallen hero to honor them for their service. 
.
At 3:01 p.m. local time, all Scouts who play the bugle or horn are invited to play “Taps” from their homes in unison with others throughout their community. 

5. Share Photos of Your Memorial Poster and Scout Salute
.
Share your photos on social media now through Memorial Day using  #ScoutSalute #NoVeteranEverDies .  

PLEASE NOTE : Scouts, as individuals or with members of their own family may place flags on headstones where regulations allow. For 2020 , Packs, Troops, and any other placing of flags as a group activity is not permitted as directed by the Department of Veterans Affairs due to COVID-19.
