Today, Boy Scouts from Edmonson County Troop 597 and Arrow of Light Scouts from Edmonson County Pack 597 conducted a Veterans program at the Brownsville, Kentucky senior care center for those Veterans that were unable to attend a Veteran's Day program.
The Program opened with the Scouts presenting the American, Kentucky and Edmonson County Flags. Arrow of Light Scout Dakotah Curtis led the pledge of allegiance while Boy Scout Haydn Burrell, Arrow of Light Scouts Brycen Daniels, and Jason Willis presented the flags.
Boy Scout J.T. Stewart provided a prayer thanking the Lord for our veterans. Boy Scout Derick Jaggers and Arrow of Light Scout Tristan Lucas read poems thanking our veterans. The veterans in attendance were then presented with an American Flag. Boy Scout Dalton Curtis concluded the program by playing Taps in honor of those veterans that paid the ultimate price.
