Kinsman troop visits nation's capital



Published: Wed, July 4, 2007 @ 10:47 p.m.

KINSMAN — Summer is far from over, but it’s already been an unforgettable season for youths from the Boy Scouts of America Troop 93 of Kinsman.

After 10 months of planning, hard work and fundraisers, the troop collected enough money to take a five-day trip to Washington, D.C.

During the June 21-25 stay in the nation’s capital the Scouts got V.I.P. access to many historic sites.

“They got to see and do things the regular tourist does not,” said troop leader Joel Ford. “They laid a wreath at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington Cemetery, toured the Pentagon and camped at Antietam Battlefield, which is a privilege reserved for Boy Scouts.”

During the trip, the troop also received assistance from the staff of Ohio Congressman Steve LaTourette.

Staff members gave a tour of LaTourette’s office “and showed us some of the sights,” Ford explained.
