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.”
