Owego, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Girl Scouts from Troop 25 in Apalachin honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

This is the seventh year this troop has gone to Riverside Cemetery to place flags at the gravestones of soldiers who died serving their country.

Some headstones go back as far as the Civil War.

The girls distributed more than 200 flags.

Scout leader Jennifer Werner says it's very important for the girls to be able to understand the sacrifice and honor
