I have taught in public schools, and I must say that I have always been impressed with Boy Scouts and Eagle Scouts. It is a great organization. Good job, Brandon. You are a pillar of civilization.

From a fellow Eagle Scout, congrats Brandon and good job.

The Path To Eagle isn't about merit badges and acquiring ranks. It's about growing as a person and as a citizen. I think you've demonstrated very well that you've internalized those lessons. Thanks for serving as an excellent example for others.

It is so nice to see a positive story about a great accomplishment. with out even knowing it Brandon, you will inspire others. Heck I may even change my screen name.. Maybe to We all should bother? Good job to Brandon's parents as well.

Boo hoo. Life aint fair. Congrats on being the first jerk to have to say something negative. Read the article about Brandon and the hardships he faced how he unselfishly thought of others. Get the message Billy Boy?
