A newly organized display case is helping us honor our founders, Eric and Cleo Scott.

One of the big items is the 6th Engineers Guidon in the center of the case. It has an image of the castle in the upper left corner. The outside edge is red with red lettering inside the white center rectangle area. 1917 is placed in the lower right as the year of formation for the 6th Engineers.

These words were spoken by our founder, Eric Scott and echoed by his wife, Cleo at the establishment of what has become the Veterans National Memorial Shrine & Museum in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Eric Scott was only 18 when he enlisted in the U.S. Army. He was mustered in and spent six weeks in training. His assignment was to the Third Infantry Division, Sixth Combat Engineers in France.
