The annual celebration of Scoutings Birth Day is celebrated every year in February and for the Cub Scouts that means the Blue and Gold Banquet. This year Pack 121 celebrated the Blue and Gold banquet with a special guest speaker. Mrs. Kisters whose husband Sgt. Gerry Kisters was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor, the Distinguished Service Cross, the Purple Heart and many other accommodations for service and sacrifice during WWII honored the pack by sharing her husbands story. She also brought along all of the medals he received for his courage and service.
What a wonderful story about not only an american hero, but also a former scout and resident of Bloomington, Indiana. The Monroe County Airport, is named Kisters Field in honor of Sgt. Kisters. The kids had a great time and what a great history lesson and honor it was to have Mrs. Kisters speak to the pack.
