Eagle Court of Honor Quote

Robert Kopa-something-or-other from my Troop had his Eagle Court of Honor yesterday and the normal collection of delegates from state and local government were present, one being the attaché to Dennis O’Brien, the PA Speaker of the House. He talked about how he didn’t know what to say and used the following amazing quote to explain what Eagle meant to him.

“Two hundred years ago, President Theodore Roosevelt said the following ‘Do not foul, do not flinch’, and this Eagle hasn’t.”

Theodore Roosevelt running two hundred years ago, wow. Considering he was president from 1901 to 1908 that would mean he had a 93 year campaign, and I thought Reagan had a long campaign time.
