Mayor Nader Baroukh proclaimed Falcon Patrol Day last Saturday in Falls Church to honor the nine members of the Falcon Patrol of Troop 681 who received their Eagle Scout awards at a Court of Honor at St. James School.
Pictured above with the mayor are, from left to right, in front Brian Hur, Frank Whitesell, Joshua Sarker, Michael McKeon, the Rev. Edward Horkan, Christopher Harding and Abid Joyia. In the back are Thomas Gutema, A.J. Norton, Evan Harvey and Scoutmaster Kevin Coleman. The 10th member of the patrol, Samuel Parker, who also achieved Eagle rank, was away on a mission trip to Haiti. All the members of the patrol earned Eagle rank, a rare “clean sweep.” (Photo: Richard Lobb)
