It was brought to my attention that many of us have not populated the medical ID section of our mobile phones. I encourage you and your loved ones to check out the websites below and fill out the information on the health app on your cell phones. In an emergency situation, EMS can access important information even when your cell phone is locked, including your medications, allergies and blood type, and are able to contact your emergency contacts listed on your phone. This is a valuable tool that can help improve health outcomes.

FVS History Highlights: “a place to tie to” 

An often overlooked historical site in Oakton"
It seems paradoxical, but cemeteries can often make history “come alive.” The dates and the stories of the individuals interred give us
rich historical information.
Such is the case with the Flint Hill Cemetery. It is located at the intersection of Chain Bridge Road and Courthouse Road as you are headed out of Oakton. The land that the cemetery occupies is adjacent to a Civil War fort which today hosts the Oakton Church of the Brethren. It is one of the oldest community cemeteries in Fairfax County, dating back to 1852 when Oakton was named Flint Hill.
At least 26 Civil War veterans are buried in the cemetery, including four of Mosby’s Rangers. In October, 2012, a Civil War Trails marker was installed honoring the veterans buried in the Flint Hill Cemetery and the adjacent church graveyard.
The cemetery also holds the remains of many of the area’s most prominent citizens who played a role in the history of Oakton, including Vale Club member Wilma Fox Rosch who attended Vale School. Next time you are driving on Chain Bridge, take note of this important piece of history.
