On behalf of our staff and residents at Freedom House I would like to publicly thank the young men of Boy Scout Troop 154 for their service to veterans. Freedom House is a transitional housing facility for homeless veterans in our community. Veterans are housed, provided case management and given access to community resources in an effort to help them achieve greater self-sufficiency.

At the Cuyahoga Falls Memorial Day Parade, the scouts from Troop 154 collected money and goods that will directly benefit our residents. Through this experience these young men have realized the true meaning of honoring our less fortunate veterans.

What a wonderful lesson for these Scouts to learn the importance of honoring veterans, not just with words, but through good deeds.
