Boy Scout installing flagpoles for wounded veterans

Thomas O’Gorman, a Scout from Troop 271 in Harker Heights, Texas, has come up with a great idea for an Eagle Scout project.

Harker wanted to bring a special kind of recognition to veterans in his community who had been wounded in action. Now he’s in the process of installing flag poles in front of their houses.

“Today’s society is so focused and wrapped around pop stars” Thomas told local TV news station KCEN. “I want them to see the soldiers who sacrificed themselves, and are brave enough to go out on the front line to protect their freedoms and mine.”

    Awesome project! Thank you! Our thoughts are this project fits for the community. It allows the community to be able to identify and show their appreciation for our veterans.

  2. As a wounded Viet Nam veteran I would have been overwhelmed with pride if this young man had erected a flagpole in my yard.

  3. A great Eagle Project that benefits the community and our Nation by way of bringing attention and honor to those wounded veterans who gave of themselves to both their community and our nation.
