Firefighter Eagle Scout Meeting
Friday, April 24, 1:00 p.m., Room Wabash 1
FDIC International, Indianapolis, Indiana, www.fdic.com
Do you own an Eagle Scout medal? Only four percent of all Scouts ever reach the rank of Eagle. That four percent carries on a life of duty and honor that the Scout Oath and Law epitomize–once an Eagle, always an Eagle. Many Eagle Scouts grow up and enter the fire service; doing a good turn daily and being prepared are the backbone of scouting and the fire service. That is why the National Eagle Scout Association (NESA), the group that represents all Eagle Scouts, young and old, is focusing on the fire service. NESA is starting to form professional groups of Eagle Scouts known as Affinity Groups. The first group formed is the Fire Service. The purpose of the Firefighter Affinity Group is to bring the Fire Service Eagles together to share the fellowship that is foundation of both scouting and the fire service. Fellow Firefighter Eagles will be able to offer mentoring, leadership, and service through this group. The NESA Firefighter group will also be at the Indiana State Fire Marshals booth on Friday, April 24. We hope every Fire Service Eagle will join NESA.
