Colonial Beach Troop 258’s Double Palmed Eagle Scout Jason King, a Washington & Lee High School Student, presently the Troop’s Troop Guide has recently become a member in the newly formed Venture Crew 258 sponsored by the Town’s VFW Post 10574. With the help of Scouts like Jason, the Troop has earned the Centennial Quality Unit Award for 2009.
Jason has been selected as one of 100 Eagle Scouts from across the Nation as a candidate for the VFW’s “Scout of the Year” program. Jason was nominated by VFW Post 10574, Colonial Beach, VA, and will be traveling to Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, on February the 12th, 2009, as part of this special group that is attending the “Freedoms Foundation Weekend for Eagle Scouts”. The “Scout of the Year” program is part of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States “The Price of Freedom” program.

Congratulations on your selection Jason and good luck on your Silver Palm Board of Review.

Article today in the Freelance Star Region Section about Jason... possibly another this week or next in the Westmoreland News.

Yes, Both boys are outstanding Eagle Scouts, and will go far in life.

Patty has worked for over 12 years as an adult scout leader and is the salt of the earth.
