Hello Fellow Scouters:
I have been researching the different addresses of famous
people/leaders/Eagles/organizations, that we can contact to request a letter
congratulating the new Eagle Scout on his accomplishment. I would say that
former President Ford, Stephen Speilberg (sp?), Sam Walton (founder of
WalMart), Jim Lovell (commander Apollo 13) are some of the most famous
Eagles. However, probably THE most famous Eagle Scout, IMHO, is Neil
Armstrong. He was the first person to set foot on the moon, the Lunar Module
was named Eagle, and of course those famous words, ".....the Eagle has
landed!", still ring in my ears.
I understand that Mr. Armstrong is a very private person, and only gives a
few speeches each year. Does anybody on the list know if Astronaut/Eagle
Scout Neil Armstrong ever sends out any congratulatory letters to new
Eagles? If so, what is his address??
In an effort to conserve space, I have another question, which is totally
off the above subject. If a scout earns the Hornaday Badge, can the
conservation project that he does be counted as one of the four required
projects for the Hornaday Bronze Medal??
You may send any replies to my address, which is firstname.lastname@example.org.
