Dedicated to honor of serving with Michael Scoville

Michael Scoville

VIETNAM, NAVAL SHIPMATE

Mike Scoville was an original charter member of Post 281 when a bunch of Dell Webb vets decided they wanted to create a Post in Mt. Juliet.  Mike was an great advocate in creating the Honor Guard and was a very active member for the time he lived in Mt. Juliet.  A love interest drew him to East Tennessee and so he moved there to be with her.  He died recently,  like Jan of 2024,  so his family donated this Honor Guard electronic bugle to the post 281 Honor Guard in his memory.   Steven Wren (the HG Commander) wanted to commemorate the Bugle to Michael Scoville’s memory so that Michael would be ever for ever remembered, and purchased the plaque to be secured to the bugle forever more.
