Boys Scouts help at Battlefield

Rockmart Troop 23 lowers the United States flag at Chickamauga National Battlefield as part of serving as the Honor Guard at the park headquarters this Labor Day weekend. The troop also participated in a USA flag retirement ceremony and historic trails cleanup effort. During the flag retirement ceremony, multiple tattered and worn flags were respectfully retired at the battlefield. Also, 32 Rockmart Boy Scouts and leaders cleared downed limbs and trash debris from various historic trails throughout the park. Troop 23’s Scoutmaster is Patrick Bonito Jr. (Contributed photo)
