Hi, I was a member of the troop from about 1974 to 1976. I earned the rank of Eagle and have 24 merit badges. I am also am an honored camper of the Order of the Arrow Kecoughtan lodge. You more than likely have my name on a plaque in the church where you meet. I live in Norfolk at present and will be moving back to NN in the fall. My son is 12 and I do wish to start him in a Scouting program and could not think of anywhere I would rather have him than Troop 11. I recently ran across some pictures of part of the troop from the time I was there. Have I got your attention yet? Email me back. I’ll scan them and send them to you. Hope to hear back from your troop soon.
Sent you an email with meeting info, Gary. thanks for the inquiry.
I ran across your website today. I was assistant scoutmaster for 7 years in the 1970’s. I was glad to see your email from Gary Justice. I was his assistant scoutmaster. We had a very active troop in those days, with about 60 boys being in Troop 11. The first weekend of every month we went camping, no matter the weather, and had some very interesting events. I have a photo of when Gary Justice, Scott Blue, Michael Eubanks, David Lyles, and 3 other boys received their Eagle Scout award at the same time. At that time these 7 boys were the largest group of scouts in one troop to earn their Eagle at the same time. The ceremony was held at the church and it was packed. Scouting magazine sent a representative down to report. Langly Air Force band furnished the music. All of these boys came up through their scouting ranks together. If you would like a copy of the picture for your gallery I would be glad to send it to you. I can not remember the other 3 boys names, but you will find them all together on the placque at the church. Troop 11 was the envy of all the other troops in the council then. I hope that it is better off than other troops around the country.
