In keeping with the wishes of the late Leonard S. Michalowski, Falls Church Boy Scout Troop 895 has adopted Veterans Commons, located on the W&OD Trail at the junction of Little Falls Street, and has been working to maintain the grounds, preserving Veterans Commons as a place of beauty that all may enjoy. In addition, the Troop intends to resume the traditions established by Michalowski by holding early morning flag ceremonies at the site on Memorial Day and Veterans Day.
