CHAMBERSBURG — The cub scouts of the Conococheague District in Franklin County are looking for past and present service men and women to take part in their salute to veterans Friday, July 12, at Letterkenny Army Depot.
The event is part of this year’s Cub Scout Day Camp in the recreation area of the depot. Along with usual areas of activities, the scouts will learn about some of the people who have fought and continue to fight for the United States military.
The scouts will learn about the Civil War on Monday and Tuesday, and, on Wednesday, will hear from Carlisle resident Ellis Bell, a World War II veteran who fought in Germany and the Pacific. On Thursday, professor Stephen Underhill from Chambersburg will discuss the “Forgotten War” — Korean War — and on Friday, the scouts will honor all service men and women.
The scouts invite all veterans from all wars, as well as any currently serving military, to join the scouts for activities and lunch during the day on Friday. The cost for lunch is $3.50 for servicemen for pulled pork barbecue or hot dog, potato salad, watermelon and drink. For those who do not serve in the military, the lunch costs $7.
