National Boy Scout Day

On Feb. 8, 1910, filed incorporation papers to create the Boy Scouts of America. For more than 100 years, the Boy Scouts have helped build future leaders, many of whom went on to serve in the U.S. military. In this 1920s photo, Boy Scouts honor America's Unknown Soldier in observing Armistice Day.
Among the first to observe Armistice Day in Washington were the Boy Scouts of America, who journeyed to Arlington National Cemetery bright and early where they paid a colorful tribute to America's Unknown Soldier. Richard Buddeke and Wagner Lawder, Eagle Scouts, are placing the wreath, while Dick Babcock is [playing] Taps. (Photo courtesy the Library of Congress)
