ABC40 Honor Roll – Boy Scouts Honor Fallin Soldiers

LONGMEADOW, Mass. (WGGB) Members of Boy Scout Troop 90 traveled to Gettysburg last month. The kids placed a Massachusetts State Flag on the grave of the one-hundred and fifty-nine Bay Staters killed during the battle.

Members of the troop drove 16 hours round trip and slept outside in 17 degree temperatures, in order to honor the sacrifice of those individuals from Massachusetts. Troop 19 is sponsored by St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Longmeadow.
