For my Eagle Scout Project, I designed and constructed an outdoor World War II educational exhibit titled “Liberation Pointe” to honor the sacrifices of D-Day and WWII veterans. It is located at the front entrance of the Army Heritage and Education Center (AHEC) in Carlisle, PA. It was unveiled in 2019, to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of D-Day and there were 22 WWII veterans in attendance.
The project took over 2 years to complete and consumed 2,385 hours of volunteer work. I raised over $42,000 in cash, and with in-kind donations, and the entire project is valued at approximately $200,000. I provided public speaking presentations at nearly 100 different meetings of veteran organizations, civic groups, and area businesses.
I am extremely proud that I brought community together to help support the project. It involved all parts of my community, from million-dollar corporations, to small local companies, Veteran organizations, all to the way to the Office of the Secretary of the Army, my Scout peers, and Trinity High School students. The project consists of:
I wanted to change that!
Because of my work I am proud to have been awarded the prestigious 2021 Glenn A. and Melinda W. Adams National Eagle Scout Service Project of the Year Award.
