Eagle Scout Neil Armstrong

Scouts-L comes through! My thanks to many who sent in suggestions of
where to look to find information on when Neil Armstrong became an Eagle
Scout. My favorite was from Cheryl Singhal, who suggested I contact
NASA or my local newspaper. Well, duh...why didn't I think of that? My
local paper is the Houston Chronicle as in "Houston, we have a problem."
And NASA is a local call! Also thanks to Bob Amick for NESA's phone
number and Karl Kuntz for Neil's hometown.
And the answer is....
Neil Armstrong became an Eagle Scout on 12/24/47. He was in Troop 14 in
We got the date and troop number from NESA. We got the confirmation on
town name from NASA.
Cade and I thank you all!
