Eagle Scouts

 Welcome to the Troop 4 Eagle Scout Page

On this page, the Troop provides a summary of all the service projects led by our Eagle Scouts over the years.  Recently, this page was enhanced to include photographs and links to the Eagle Scout biography sheets presented at the Court of Honor. Unfortunately, we are missing photos/biographies for some Eagles from our early years, and some of our photos were taken years after the project was completed.  Photos that include the Eagle Scout ‘in action’ would be great additions to this web page. If you have a copy of a missing Court of Honor biography sheet, or better photos of an Eagle Scout Service Project, please contact John Comisky at jcomisky@aol.com.  Any hard copy photos or biographies will be promptly returned.   Your help in this matter will close the gaps and provide a more complete history of our Troop 4 Eagle Scout accomplishments.  Thank you.  (p.s. Thanks to Eagle Scout Brandon Dulak for starting this web page enhancement project)
