Our SM grew up in the troop and recieved his Eagle, upon age 18 he
became an ASM and also spent some brief time as an ADC in addition.
Except for a brief time out of the area with his job his membership has
remained with this unit. He is still unmarried at age 38 (anyone know
of a good looking female interested in the out-of-doors ;-) ) which just
allows him the time and freedom to be more available. It also gives us
someone who can't be labeled as being partial to a particular boy.
We have recently gotten another "old eagle" to rejoin the troop as an
ASM, after being away from the program and area for several years. He
is still unmarried also.
We also have another one interested and his father (an old SM) will
return this fall to help on the committee.
The biggest advantage we are finding is that these guys have gone
through the program in this unit, so they can bring back "traditions"
for our boys to enjoy.
