On this Memorial Day I would like to ask all scouts to reflect on what that means. Memorial Day is a day of remembrance of our military men and women that are no longer with us. They gave their life for our freedom. 

One of these men that I have looked up is General Douglas McArthur. I looked him up because he was a Boy Scout. He used what he learned as a Boy Scout and applied it to his Military Career. He was born January 1, 1880 and died April 5, 1964, he was 84. He was a Boy Scout and received his Eagle when he was 12 years old. At 15 years old he participated in the Boy Scout World Jamboree in Hungry. At 17 he bicycled thru the U.K. For his military career he went to West Point in 1899 and graduated June 11, 1903. He served in the Mexican Revolution, WWI, WWII and the Korean War. When he retired he had earned the rank of 5 Star General. One of the Highest you can receive. He also received Medals and awards that are: Boy Scout Silver Buffalo Award, Medal of Honor, 3 Distinguished Service Cross, 5 Army Distinguished Service Medal, Navy Distinguished Service Medal, 7 Silver Star, Distinguished Flying Cross, Bronze Star Medal, 2 Purple Hearts, Air Medal, and 7 Presidential Unit Citation. He was a man of Honor because of his Duty to his Country.

All of you should try to strive to live like he did. I hope this encourages you to understand what Memorial Day is truly for. To all of our men and women who have served in our military, be it past or present, we say thank you for your time, honor, courage, and sacrifice.
