At the General meeting on May 23rd, Eagle Scout Josiah Moody was recognized for achieving the highest rank in the Boy Scouts program. The Marine Corps and the Marine Corps League recognize and reward those Scouts who demonstrate the initiative and drive it takes to accomplish the requirements of the Eagle Scout rank.
Josiah's maternal grandfather served on active duty for over 15 years before his battle with cancer ended. Josiah's mother Kemberly said this is very special to Josiah and even more special to her as she rekindled her connection with Marines since her father's passing when she was 16. Josiah's father expressed his sincere appreciation not only for the recognition, but also for the contribution by our Marines and members to the United States.
The award was presented with about 30 members and guests present and his sisters watched proudly as he received the Marine Corps League's Distinguished Citizen Award designed specifically for Eagle Scouts.
This family is part of our Marine family and we were honored to be a part of their story. The Marines say Semper Fidelis; always faithful.
