Eagle Scouts: Legacy of Honor

As most of you who have been around for while know I am an Eagle Scout. I did not really realize how many famous people actually achieved this rank and how many of them fit the bill to a tee of what an Eagle is supposed to be.

I have Just recently started reading a book called Legacy of Honor by Alvin Townley. This book was passed to me from another adult leader in my troop who is an Eagle Scout. I just started reading it and my plan is to give a full review of it along with my take on different people who are Eagle Scouts.

I have heard that this book takes a famous person and matches their story to an Eagle Scout value that we all hold. It sounds like an interesting read and from what I have read already it would be a great book for those who are not involved in scouting to learn what an Eagle is all about, and show how great of a program scouting is. Also it shows how much scouting can have an impact on someones life. It certainly has impacted mine.

I think since I read so much book reviews may start to be a part of this blog. I have not fully decided yet. Should I start adding book reviews or not?

Thanks!

  1. Why don’t you add book reviews, it can’t do any harm. It will help some people discover new stuff to read, make you think about your reading in a different light, and help with your writing. So, it is all good. I was never a Scout, but I applaud you for doing something constructive and worthwhile. Regards as always, Pete.
