In this video from the Warren County Scouting Showcase, Eagle Scout Ethan Zied shares how he researched and marked Jewish veterans' graves in Greater Cincinnati's Jewish Cemeteries. Hear Ethan's reflections on the impact of his project beginning at 17:12 in the video.
Ethan shares, "I was able to honor 2,500 veterans, some of whom never received recognition for their service in their lifetimes...For the community, the markers silently say 'thank you' for the veterans' dedication.
