No Veteran goes forgotten
Teen looking to become 2nd female eagle scout with new initiative to find the graves of veterans without Flags.
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Young lady in Cheyenne is looking to become the 2nd female Eagle Scout in Wyoming. She has launched an initiative to make sure no Veteran is left behind.
18-year old Lizabeth Kidd says she formed a group of 7 people thus far to scour the cemetery for veterans’ marked headstones. She and Mother have come up with a map and vital signs of a past United States soldier.
“I was an East ROTC cadet, and I’ve been doing Flags on for over four years, and I’m responsible for making sure some headstones got marked because no one knew that they were veterans other than my self and a few others.”
Kidd says she doesn't have an exact number of veterans who may not have the flag on during the right time of year, but she is looking to change that.
“It Impacts the community and the families of those veterans because those Veterans deserve to remain in our memory. That’s the whole reason we put flags out.”
The group plans to gatherer again August 7th to begin the next search for unmarked veterans headstones.
