In my Troop, we have been blessed with a Congressman
who is himself an Eagle Scout and who is very
supportive of Scouting. I call his office to schedule
the CoH, at least a month ahead of time. They bring a
nice letter of congrats and a flown-over-the-Capitol
flag and present it to the new Eagle. This makes for
a nice part of the ceremony.
Check with your District Advancement Chairman, who
should know of similar arrangements in your area.
Failing that, call up to the Council office and ask to
speak with the person who Eagle Advancement, he/she
will know for sure.
Hope this helps, and please pass along my
congratulations to the new Eagle!
SM, Troop 857
And, congresscritters have a whole lot more clout
getting things like that done.
