    Millions this weekend celebrated the unofficial start of summer honoring those who gave their lives in war, and Memorial Day transcended generations at the Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery. That’s where Joseph Brunson, 7, bypassed barbecues and swimming pools and took time out of his weekend to place flowers on the graves of our fallen heroes. The nonprofit group “Remember Heroes” places floral arrangements at the grave sites of local war dead each year. Joseph heard about a volunteer project at his Cub Scout meeting. The boy told the CBS Dallas affiliate that he wanted to volunteer his time alongside his...

    Travel is a hassle for an 8-year-old Cub Scout from New Jersey. That's because Mikey Hicks shares the same name of a person who has drawn the suspicion of the Homeland Security Department. His mother tells The New York Times she sensed trouble when her son was a baby and she couldn't get a seat for him at a Florida airport. She says airline officials explained his name "was on the list." He was patted down as a 2-years-old at Newark Liberty International Airport.

    On a rolling hill in the middle of a veteran’s cemetery, one young Boy Scout’s resolve helped honor a shipmate forgotten for half a century. A year and a half ago, during a veteran’s day ceremony in Seattle’s Evergreen-Washelli Veteran’s Memorial Cemetery, then eight and a half year old Boy Scout, Kevin Menzia, turned away from the services and gazed over the rows of neatly placed gravestones. Among the thousands of marble headstones in the Navy veteran’s section of the cemetery, Kevin noticed something odd. One of the stones was missing. “We go up and clean off the graves when...

    California judges may have to disqualify themselves from certain cases if they are involved with the Boy Scouts of America, according to new rules approved by the state's Supreme Court. Lynn Holton, a spokeswoman for the state Supreme Court, said on Thursday that several California judges are leaders or members of the Boy Scouts, a group that has come under legal fire from gay groups because it bars "avowed homosexuals" from membership. According to the new rules approved on Wednesday for state judges, "A judge should disclose to the parties his or her membership in an organization, in any proceeding...

    Suspect Declared Fugitive On More Than 40 ChargesBETHLEHEM, Pa. -- A father accused of scamming neighbors by dressing his 7-year-old son in a Cub Scouts uniform and going door-to-door seeking donations for a nonexistent scout pack failed to show up for his preliminary hearing.
