Looking For An Eagle Project Idea?
Many of these groups have a big wish list of ideas where they need your help. Just ask to see the head ranger, director or leader and ask for their wish list:
Rescue in the Sipsey Wilderness
"We were helping him along and helping him walk, and then we decided it was taking too long, so I ran back and got the cot and I ran back to the guy," said Eagle Scout Nick Burrow.
See courage up close as you explore 175 acres of history and seven decades of heroism. Located in Mobile Bay, this is America's Most unique military attraction, an unforgettable adventure for the entire family. Exhibits also include a real submarine, over 30 historic aircraft, helicopters, tanks and river boats.
Baseball and Boy Scouts
Henry Aaron grew up in Alabama, in a small house he helped his dad build in 1942. It had no toilet and just two bedrooms for eight kids. “The first one in bed got all the covers,” he joked at a recent appearance at the Smithsonian Institution. When it rained, “you’d look up at the ceiling and it would rain down on you.”
Hank, as he was known, had two loves: baseball and the Boy Scouts. He can still recite the Scout oath. His years playing in the major leagues seem like yesterday, said Aaron, who recently celebrated his 80th birthday.
Aaron told KidsPost that one of his favorite memories is winning the 1957 World Series with the Milwaukee Braves. Aaron said that experience “ranks right up there” with the day in 1974 when he broke Babe Ruth’s record of 714 career home runs. The latter is a somewhat painful memory because for months, he and his family had been threatened by people angry that a black man was toppling a record some had thought would last forever. It wasn’t his first brush with racism on the field. Years earlier, fans had thrown rocks at him, hitting him in the head.
Like his hero, Jackie Robinson, who integrated baseball a few years before Aaron arrived, Aaron just kept playing. He retired after the 1976 season with 755 home runs. He still holds several records, including 25 All-Star Game appearances. In 1982, he entered the Baseball Hall of Fame. Not bad for the skinny kid who started out hitting rag balls and bottle caps with a broomstick.
