In 2013, Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturers, Girl Scouts and their family members placed U.S. flags on over 50,000 graves at the Chattanooga National Cemetery. A brief ceremony honoring the Marine Corps featured a veteran speaking on the history of Memorial Day to help young Scouts learn the value of service in America. Families of fallen servicemen and servicewomen were in attendance. Scouts received a recognition patch for participation.
