Service opportunity - Zachary's Eagle Scout project

Posted on Aug 7 2022 - 9:05pm

Hi,

I am looking for volunteers for my Eagle Project on Saturday, 13 August at 9:00am at Alexandria National Cemetery:
1450 Wilkes St, Alexandria, VA 22314
 
We will be using personal cell phones to take photos of headstones, transcribe them, and then upload them to a website for easy public access.
This is a great opportunity to digitally memorialize our soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines.
The school year is rapidly approaching and this is a great way to honor our Nation's heroes and get those service hours you need for your next rank or for school.
 
But I don't have a cell phone, I am low on data, or my parents refuse to take me anywhere before noon on Saturdays? NO PROBLEM! I have multiple jobs for those that don't have a cell phone, I'll have a WIFI hotspot setup for those low on data, and I have volunteer drivers for those that need a ride to/from site.
 
Thank you for volunteering!

Zachary
