Less than 5% of the young men that enter the Boy Scouts of America achieve the coveted Eagle Scout rank. I was so proud of my son when he earned his Eagle. Being the father of a Boy Scout, I know the dedication this required. It took my son 100's of meetings, campouts, projects, special events, and thousands of hours of work, and the sacrifice of those dedicated Scout leaders who helped him.

And the story continues:
In early 2013, Bob contacted me about building a stained glass Eagle Scout emblem window for his grandson Todd. Todd was only months away from attaining his Eagle Scout rank and his sister Robin wanted to help build a really special gift to honor her brother. Bob's grandaughter Robin,13, is a beginning stained glass builder, and wanted to help Bob build this window. I sent Bob some closeup photos and a lot of encouragement.
In his own words Bob described himself as an amateur glass builder, but he sent me a photo of two recent projects. Obviously, he had the skills to take on a complicated project, and to teach his granddaughter in the process.

Eagle Scout Todd, sister Robin and grandad Bob show off Todd's new stained glass window at his Court of Honor. Congratulations Todd!
This was a very complicated project because of the large number of very small pieces. Hope we see many more fine projects from Robin and Bob.
This window was built for my son Chris in July of 2002, contains about 160 pieces of glass and measures about 27" x 32".
This window is dedicated to all the young men everywhere who have sacrificed and excelled to achieve this distinction. These are our leaders of tomorrow!
