Support for the Boy Scout movement came at The American Legion's first National Convention in 1919. Today, there are more than 2,500 Boy Scout units sponsored by Legion Posts throughout the country.
Supporting Boy Scout activities is natural for Legionnaires, who bring their service-learned skills and experiences as Veterans to bear to help build character and positive traits in "Young America." Few other Post activities generate more goodwill from the community.
On August 12th, 2017 the William J. Hocking Post 91, Wharton, NJ hosted Troop 67 for the Eagle Scout Ceremony of Adam Yeager. Post 91 Commander John Ruppell presented the new Eagle Scout, Adam Yeager, with an American Legion Good Citizenship Citation for his achievement. Post 91 is proud to have hosted this event and is planning to host the next Eagle Scout Ceremony in November of 2017.
