Thank you, thank you, thank you! The Eagle medal was put the right spot,
I think. I saw three others there that were in different places, including
one on the right pocket pinned under the OA patch . . . . oh well!
All went very well . . . .and very emotionally. . . . after older brother
gave the Eagle Charge to younger brother they shook hands and then gave
each other a big, long embrace . . . . all moms were dripping tears. After
a few words of what Scouting has meant to him, Chris had some recognition
gifts for ASM's and a fellow Scout . . . . all very touching . . . . and by
the time we got to our guest speaker there was hardly a dry eye in the
My need for perfection paid off . . . . all participants had their own
specially marked scripts and no one missed a cue. I'm glad it's over . . .
. and very, very proud of my two Eagle Scouts and my Woods Badge Scouter
who's now working on his Sea Badge.
Thanks again for the help on proper placement of the Eagle medal . . . .and
for all the wonderful words of encouragement and support.
