Mike Powers, moderator of Blog of the Irish and Hollywood Deledum Est, was awarded the highest rank of Boy Scouting, Eagle Scout, for his dedication of a memorial to the veterans of World War II.
His sentiments, shared by many, are materialized in this memorial that shall stand unhindered for decades, perhaps even centuries to come. The dedication of this memorial is only outweighed by the dedication of those it honors.
The story of this memorial and Mr. Powers' own Scouting experiences can be read here.
