Scouts from the area had a busy weekend doing the honor of placing the United States Flag on the graves of deceased military members. 


On Saturday Elsberry Girl Scout Troop 2877, consisting of Christine Wehmeyer and Alannah Tapley, (pictured on the right) and Elsberry Cub Scouts Pack 391, as well as the Elsberry American Legion Auxilliary placed flags in the Elsberry City Cemetery.   

On Sunday members of the cub scouts pack had another opportunity to place flags, as they traveled to Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery along with other scout troops from all over St. Louis to place flags on thousands of military graves.
