Scouting Hawai‘i's biggest service project.

National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific

Aloha Council will hold its annual flag placement at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific (Punchbowl) on Sunday, May 28, 2023 (with follow-up sessions on Tuesday, May 30 and Wednesday, May 31 for flag take-down).
 
Scouts in our state and across the country will build on the tradition of honoring our nation's fallen heroes this Memorial Day in partnership with the National Cemetery Administration, an agency within the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. 
 
"Our Scouts learn the importance of duty to country and of honoring the people who served it through the values outlined in the Scout Oath and Law," said Boy Scouts of America CEO Roger Mosby, a U.S. Navy veteran.  "It is our privilege to work with the Department of Veterans Affairs to show our gratitude to fallen service members who otherwise may not receive the attention they deserve during this trying time for our country."
 
"This collaboration between the Boy Scouts of America and the National Cemetery Administration represents a significant effort to honor and express gratitude to our nation's Veterans on this Memorial Day and every day," said Under Secretary for Memorial Affairs Randy Reeves.

The Memorial Day Good Turn is the longest-running and biggest Scout service project on O‘ahu, with Scouts decorating every grave at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific with flags and flower lei.
