On July 24th 2021 I had the honor of attending the Eagle Scout ceremony for Boy Scout Troop 155 of Hanover Township, NJ, they had 7 Eagle Scouts: Ryan Walker, Nicholas Romanowsky, Joshua Danus, Steven Fasano, Tyler Feret, Jacob Lieto, and Timothy Wainscott.

Eagle Scout is the highest advancement rank in Boy Scouting. Since 1912 more than two Million Boy Scouts have earned the Eagle Scout rank. In the words of the Eagle Scout Promise, Eagles do their best each day to make their training an example, their rank and their influence count strongly for better Scouting and for better citizenship in their troop, in their community, and in their contacts with other people.

To this they pledge their sacred honor
