Garrett Johnson, 2019 Eagle Scout Project of the Year

Garrett Johnson, 2019 Eagle Scout Project of the Year
when I was developing plans from an

Eagle

Scout

project

I knew I wanted to do something for the folds of Honor because of the work they do driving home from a

Scout

meeting one night my dad mentioned how major Dan Rooney the founder of folds of Honor was 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 station of the flag and so I liked that idea and I kind of ran with it

and 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 made an honor and tribute of the veteran departing our ranks and you gave a portion of his or her life for the defense of our country the fourth fold some of the major challenges I had developing this were the warping of the boxes after they were welded together because the condensation so we had to come back and develop a new top for the boxes that

allowed air in and rain couldn't get in and the breathability of that got rid of the condensation issue on the inside of the boxes originally we knew that we wanted them to be lit up at night because the flag is supposed to be lit up when it's being flown in the night time but also we wanted people to be able to come and see the

project

day or night so we mounted a solar panel on every box in the same location and the lights inside turn on a night when the Sun Goes Down and we thought it

would add a touch of detail and make it look really nice when they were lit up Thank You Nisa for honoring me with this award and choosing my
