I would like to take a moment to commend
Phil Barnes, Who through years of hard work in our troop, has just recently
made Eagle Scout. Ever Since I first joined this troop, Phil was to me,
not only one of those "big guys", but he was more. I always looked up to
Phil, as a role Model, and I still do. If ever I needed a hand doing anything,
or just someone to lean on, Phil was always there. To this day, I have
still never heard Phil complain, moan or groan about anything. He would
just do his share of work, and when that was done, he would come to help
everyone else who needed help. Phil was a better scout than I can ever
be. So on behalf of me, and the entire Troop, Phil Barnes, Thank You. And
always remember Phil, that wherever you are, and wherever your life takes
you, We will Never Forget You.
