This year some local scouts from various troops and I participated in a
9/11 ceremony in Santa Barbara. We got to be part of the flag
ceremony, standing at attention and saluting behind police officers
who did flags. After that, we listened to various speakers including the
Mayor, Sheriff, Fire Chief, a retired special agent in charge from the
FBI, and Congressman Salud Carbajal. After a reading of the victims’
standing at attention by his side, followed by a helicopter fly-by.
After the ceremony we got to talk with and meet the various local
dignitaries at the ceremony. Overall it was a great experience to
help in an important ceremony and meet some important people!
