This Home Page is dedicated to the memory of two exceptional Troop 26 scouts, Eagle Scout David E. McKee and Life Scout Daniel L. Beer.

Welcome to Troop 26

Welcome to the Boy Scout Troop 26 Homepage! We are a Scout Troop that has been in continous existence since June 30, 1961. We are a very proud International Troop located in Heidelberg, Germany. We are fortunate to be able to meet at the David E. McKee Memorial Scout Center located on the Patrick Henry Village Military Housing Area. Troop 26 extends an open invitation to visit us should you be visiting this area at any time. We meet every Tuesday, from 1900 hrs to 2030hrs (7:00 p.m. - 8:30p.m. for you non military types.) We are a leading troop in the Transatlantic Council active in many local and international activities. As in all military troops, Permanent Change of Stations occur approximately every 3 years. This contributes to a constant flux in our programs but in return, mandates we constantly practice our Scout Skills. Troop 26 has sent many of its finest to towns all over the United States and other parts of the world. In return, we have received many fine scouts from all parts of the globe.

Troop 26 has the pleasure of meeting every Tuesday night from 7:00 - 8:30 at the David E. McKee Memorial Scout Center. The Heidelberg Military Community has graciously dedicated the use of two buildings on the Patrick Henry Village Housing Area for the exclusive use of scouting and vigorously supports Scouting by providing facilities, camping areas, funding, publicity and their volunteer hours. We publicly thank the United States Army, Europe, 26th Area Support Group, 411th Base Support Battalion, Patrick Henry Elementary and Middle Schools and all the other Department of Defense, Department of the Army, Department of the Air Force, Dependent School System, Armed Forces Radio and Television Service (AFRTS), Army and Air Force Exchange Service, American Legion Post #3 and the host of unnamed supporters that make Scouting in Europe a quality experience. Special thanks to the Patrick Henry Youth Services who furnish us many opportunities for community service and provide the highest level of support to our many needs.

As are all troops, we are especially proud of the boys who have attained the highest rank in Scouting, that of Eagle Rank! As with most troops located on military bases overseas, our scouts move on to new assignments approximately every 3 years. Scoutmasters come and go and our records are not the best. However, we are making every attempt to locate our past Eagle Scouts. Scan our list of Eagle Scouts and if you know the location of one of ours on the list or one whose name should be on the list then drop us a line.

As the school year started, the school year has ended with many new scouts. A hearty welcome to: Michael Arbec, Travis Boltz, Elliott Boltz, Michael Drolet, Jackson Dyre-Borwicz, Caniel Hase, Alex Hoska, Jordan Patrick, Patrick Phelps, Eric Phillips and Patrick Ro.

There seems to have been a rush toward Eagle this spring. Craig Welch passed the board in March. He was followed shortly thereafter by Cameron Bowe and Philip Vaughn in April. Congratulations to Ricky Prichard who became Troop 26's latest Eagle Scout 01-04-01

This is number one for 2001.
