Troop Flags make their own history
Several Alumni from Troop 101 have gone on to the military academies. Others have gone on to serve in the various branches of the service. One of our Alumni, Eagle Scout #83, is now a helicopter Pilot in the US Army.
Captain Steven M Wisniewski took our troop flag and an American Flag on a combat mission during Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2010 and then as Pilot in Command, took that same Troop Flag on a combat mission over Afghanistan in 2013.
These flags fly with the rest of the troop's historic collection, but they have seen a few more miles and a little more action. They help remind today's scouts of what is going on in the world and for a time, they helped to remind a former Scout of his troop back home.
