Three Generations of Eagle Scouts, Jamie Turner keeps the tradition going. 

Jamie Turner followed in a previous Eagle Scout's footsteps in including the Birthplace of Dr. Walter Reed in his Eagle Scout Project. Jamie and other boy scouts cleaned, stripped and repainted the north and east side of the birthplace. 

Jamie became involved in Scouting 8 years ago as a Cub Scout.  He "bridged" over to Boy Scouts and Troop 111 5 years ago.  The service project is one of the final requirements for the rank of Eagle; an achievement that only 4% of all Scouts reach.  Jamie is the fourth of five generations in our family to be involved with Scouting.  My grandfather earned his Eagle in 1926, I earned mine in 1973.  Jamie will be the third member of our family to reach this level of success in his Scouting career. 

" My grandfather earned his Eagle in 1926, I earned mine in 1973.  Jamie will be the third member of our family to reach this level of success in his Scouting career. I want to personally thank the Foundation for its support of Scouting generally, and Troop 111 specifically.  We have had partnered with the Foundation for a number of years.  We look forward to a long and continued relationship." - Dave Turner

The Gloucester Preservation foundation would like to thank Dave, Jamie and the rest of Troop 111 for their hard work and dedication to improving the history in Gloucester, Virginia.
