Cub Scout Pack 5, Verona, NJ

13 November, 2021

Cub Scout Pack 5 in Verona, NJ welcomed GySgt Mario Monaco & Sgt. Domenick Monaco as they hosted the Pack 5 1st Annual Veterans Day Ceremony honoring local Veterans. The pack requested any scout who had a Veteran Friend or Family member to bring them for the event.

The Cub Master Michael Duda along with the pack handed out Certificates of Appreciation to every veteran in attendance and placed an American Flag at the Town’s memorial for each Branch of Service (Even the Space Force).

After the small ceremony GySgt Monaco & Sgt. Monaco spoke to the scouts about what it means to be a veteran and then showed off some military gear. The kids had a blast trying on the flak gear, helmets and handling the weapons that were brought. They asked many questions and truly enjoyed the day. The scouts which range in age from 5-11 were enthralled by the speakers and thanked everyone profusely.

The scouts are looking forward to more events with the Marine Corps League and will be participating in the Memorial Day Flag placement with the American Legion and the Slattery Detachment.

Respectfully Submitted,

Michael Lewis
Past Commandant
