The November 2009 Cub Scout Monthly Theme is “Cub Scout Salute.”
Here is the official BSA theme description:
“This month Cub Scouts salute those heroes who help keep us safe and secure each and every day. Can only adults be heroes? Heroes are often ordinary kids who did something out of the ordinary! A den can decide what makes a hero and who the heroes of tomorrow might be by looking at people they know today.
Learn about heroes in your own community, as well as Scouting heroes who have earned BSA heroism awards. Have your Cub Scouts invite their hometown heroes to a den or pack meeting. Perhaps your den can become “silent heroes” by performing service for others without seeking any recognition.
Visit a fire station, veteran’s hospital (Veterans Day is this month), police station, or teacher’s classroom and learn about their heroic deeds and reciprocate with a “Scout salute” for their contributions. You might work on the Citizenship belt loop and pin.” [Bold added]
