Celebrating Veterans Day Everyday

Pittsburgh is a town rich in a population of proud veterans and service men and women of all branches of the Military. One scout from my sons’ scout troop (BSA Troop 348, of North Side) took the initiative to show special appreciation for his local veterans by dedicating his Eagle Scout Candidate Project to developing a memorial garden for the American Legion of Avalon Borough.

In case you missed it, WPXI did a “Proud to be from Pittsburgh” feature story on this project, interviewing the Troop leaders, and the Scout himself, Jonathan Reinheardt.

I can’t tell you how many times this Boy Scout troop has impressed and astonished me with their abilities as a team. Congratulations Jonathan! Happy Veterans’ Day to all who have served.

(if you watch the video you will see my sons!)
