Annually, Troop 33 Scouts, their families, and friends, join fellow Cub, Boy, and Girl Scouts from all over the Bay area to place an American flag at each of the 112,700 graves at the Golden Gate National Cemetery in San Bruno in honor of the men and women who bravely served our country and gave the ultimate sacrifice.  There is no better way to start the Memorial Weekend than by participating in this solemn event while earning Service hours for your next rank and a commemorative patch. 

Dress is Class A Uniform.  Bring warm layers and a rain jacket as it can be misty and cool in the morning. 


We will assemble at the LAUMC parking lot at 7:00 AM and leave for the cemetery no later than 7:15AM.  A brief Opening Ceremony will begin at 8:30AM followed by the placing of the flags in our designated area. We will be back at LAUMC no later than noon.
