Boy Scout Troop 29 in Bantam has been recognized by the Connecticut Rivers Council of the Boy Scouts of America for demonstrating determination, honor, dignity and respect.
Connecticut Rivers Council Commissioner Lonny Mo presented the Council Commissioner’s Award to the troop during its meeting at the Bantam firehouse April 25. The award honors Troop 29 for traveling to Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia in January to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
“Your marching movements and the manner in which you presented the wreath at the base of the tomb clearly gained the overwhelming respect and admiration of all in attendance,” Mo said in remarks to the troop. “You represented the Boy Scouts of America proudly, with honor, dignity and respect setting an example for all Scouts across America to follow.”
