Scouts ensure Northborough’s veterans are not forgotten
By Kelly Burneson, Contributing Photographer
Northborough – Gerard W. Bourque, service officer for the Vincent F. Picard American Legion Post 234, and members of Boy Scout Troop 101, worked together May 19, placing 803 flags on the graves of veterans at the Howard Street Cemetery.
On the cool, overcast Saturday morning, the scouts were quiet and respectful as they ensured every veteran, from 1812 to the present day, including Army Specialist Brian K. Arsenault, who was killed in action in Ghazni, Afghanistan, Sept. 4, was respectfully honored.
