Ashes to Graves

Last month, Scouts from Troop 57, Neffs, Pa., participated in an Ashes to Graves ceremony, perhaps the first ever involving Boy Scouts. In Ashes to Graves, the ashes of properly retired American flags are taken to and spread over the graves of war veterans.

While many Scouts already pair up with veterans for flag retirement ceremonies, Boy Scout National Headquarters knew of no other troop participating in Ashes to Graves.
