Here are a few pictures of some things my Dad really treasured.
Most of these are Scouting related service pins.
This is the Silver Beaver award, which he received for service in the Wood Badge training program.
Established in 1931, the Silver Beaver Award is the council-level distinguished service award of the Boy Scouts of America. Recipients of this award are registered adult leaders who have made an impact on the lives of youth through service given to the council.
The Silver Beaver is an award given to those who implement the Scouting program and perform community service through hard work, self sacrifice, dedication, and many years of service. It is given to those who do not actively seek it.
Finally, the thing he treasured most of all (my Mom).
