MONROE, La (KNOE) A patriotic ceremony was held at Jesus Good Shepherd School in Monroe, Tuesday, April 30, 2019. Its mission was to honor Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and the military.

Martin Deseamus, Jr. is the Assistant Scout Master for Troop 1. He says it's very important for these young people to learn to show patriotism and honor the flag and our military.

"Whether it be folding the American flag or displaying the flag to respect for our servicemen in general it's very important in this day and time we do not overlook that in scouting," said Deseamus.
