1st Class Scout Hayden Holmes of Tonawanda Boy Scout Troop 229 and his two brothers, Jordan and Camerin, both Webelos Scouts of North Tonawanda Pack 193 visited Washington, D.C., with their mom and grandparents recently.

While there, they visited Arlington Cemetery and were given the honor of taking part in a wreath laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. As they stood at attention and presented a Scout salute, a bugler of the famous Pershing's Own 3rd Regiment played Taps.

The boys said, "We were a little nervous" and "This was really big deal and very cool!" according to grandfather and assistant Scoutmaster A.J. Leonetti of Wheatfield.
