SAN ANTONIO -- Members of the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts nationwide are spending this Memorial Day weekend saying thanks to our men and women who served by placing American flags at the headstones of fallen service members.

Boy Scout Davis Chavez of Troop 501 felt great pride in participating at Fort Sam Houston, but admitted the gesture required some muscle.

"Sometimes the ground is really hard to pierce with the little tiny flags so we bring mallets and water," Davis said.

Even though the scouts were young in age, they understood the significance of the service and sacrifice made by those buried at Fort Sam Houston.

"They died for you so you can do whatever you need to do and it just makes you feel really good about yourself," Davis said.
