CONGRATULATIONS eusa_clap.gif eusa_clap.gif to the young one.


Hard work will reap rewards. Your only starting but your on your way.

The Eagle is closer than you think.

Super job for you all as a scout can't do it all on their own all the time.

Congrats to you and your son -


My son is currently a Sgt. in the US Army stationed in Ok. He always said that the things he learned in the Scouts helped him immeasurably in the Army.

Nick:


Your son seems to have the desire to achieve goals. Next is the Rank of Life, Then Eagle.

I am an Eagle Scout, served on the Scout Council for the City of Philadelphia, and Represented the State of PA during the 200th Anniversary of the U.S. Constitution. I had a personal tour of the White House and the Capital building while Ronald Reagan was in office. The best was standing at the Podium of the House of Representatives. Scouting can teach young men many lessons in life. I credit scouting to my success, achievement and overall well roundness.

Congratuations to your son and His Achievement!!!!

Unlike his 15 year old brother who is over 6', 200lbs, my 12 year old is all of 85lbs soaking wet.

I am one of the chain movers for many of his games and have to watch him get sacked about 15 times a game by kids more than twice his size.

Nerve racking... for me anyway.

I have a son who started playing football when he was seven. At four, he was diagnosed with ITP, a very rare and deadly blood disease, in which his white blood cells would destroy his platelets. There would be times that a tap with my finger would cause bruising on the back of his hand.

"You let him play football?" you would ask. Frankly, it was a very tough call but he was not expected to live and he asked to live a normal life for whatever time he had.

At 12, he had his spleen removed, and his disease went into remission.

He played football in high school and college.

He came out of remission in college and a few years after graduating, he went into septic shock and was in a coma for 11 days. The result was a loss of both of his lower extremeties.

Today, with the help of prosthetics, he is the head coach of a high school football team and his mom and I still go to every game. He has a beautiful wife and two sons and he teaches football as life - a systematic means of identifying and overcoming those things between you and success. I know of no better teacher.

It is a very fine thing to have a son you can be proud of, isn't it Nick? Congratulations to you.

Congrats Dad’s.


I'm looking forward to my son accomplishing similar goals in the near future. He's only 4 now.

How come nobody's posting pics of their children?

Here's my beautiful children. David Jr.(4) and Leah(2)...

Beautiful kids, David. It is amazing to discover the things that they can teach you at such a young age.

My grandson and I, a year ago, spent a half-an-hour watching a butterfly in his backyard. Until I watched it with him and listened to his three-year old description of what we were watching, I never really saw a butterfly. I've not seen them the same way, since.
