Veteran Medallions – Eagle Scout Project

Home > Community Involvement > Service Projects

The Scouts of Troop 217 have been coming to the cemetery for many years to pay tribute to the Veterans who have served out country. They placed a flag at each of the Veteran’s grave. This became somewhat of a scavenger hunt as the veterans were marked on a map, but not physically at the site.

Alex Robertson took this on as his Eagle Scout Project which was completed in September 2023. Now, each Veteran has a medallion at the headstone. He researched companies that had generic medallions for Veterans of all branches of the military.

They had to be durable in the weather and be able to withstand a few whacks of a weed eater. Each medallion has a holder to place a flag. Alex helped secure the funds to purchase 80 medallions. The neighbor’s cat came to supervise the installation!

Thank you, Alex, for your dedication to this project.
