Garrett Johnson, 2019 Eagle Scout Project of the YearFeb 18, 2020
When I was developing plans for an Eagle Scout
project, I knew I wanted to do something for the Honor folds because of the work they do. Driving home from a Scout meeting one night, my dad mentioned how important Dan Rooney, the folds founder, was of Honor Catholic and we used to go to church with him and the Catholic faith our Stations of the Cross and he mentioned maybe doing something similar to that but with the flag called flag station and I liked that idea and I accepted it and we developed it from there. The first fold of our flag is the symbol of life.
The second fold symbolizes our belief in eternal life. The third fold is an honor and tribute to the veteran who leaves our ranks and you gave a part of your life for him. for the defense of our country, the fourth fold, some of the main challenges I had developing this was the deformation of the cases after welding due to condensation, so we had to go back and develop a new top for the cases to allow air to enter. and the rain couldn't get in and the breathability of that eliminated the problem of condensation on the inside of the boxes originally we knew we wanted them to be lit at night because the flag is supposed to be lit when it flies at night but also we wanted people to be able to come and see the
projectday or night so we mounted a solar panel on each box in the same spot and the lights inside come on one night when the sun goes down which we thought would add a touch of detail and it would make it look great when lit.
Thank you Nisa for honoring me with this award and choosing my project among all the great projects that exist. I feel really honored.
