No Merit Badge for Mummy-Slaying

A Cub Scout pack in Libertyville, Illinois, will be placing flags on the graves of veterans on Saturday. It won't be as scary as some had feared.

When the Memorial Day service project was first announced not all Cub Scouts were enthusiastic. To some, it sounded spooky because their only knowledge of cemeteries came from Halloween lore.

"A first-grade boy wasn't sure he wanted to be involved. He kept asking his mom 'when are we going to see mummies,'" [Judy] Zemeske recalled. "When we got to Lakeside he was greatly relieved and delighted there were no mummies. He had never been to a cemetery before." [Link]
