Three members of Boy Scout Troop 107 in Wiesbaden, Germany, received their Eagle Scout awards, the Boy Scouts’ highest honor, on Thursday.

The new Eagles are Chad Abramson, son of Maj. Steve and Joy Letcher; John Christensen, son of Col. and Chris Christensen; and Kevin Stone, son of Jeff and Petra Stone.

To become Eagles, Scouts must meet requirements in leadership, service and outdoor skills, and complete a community project.

Chad, 18, a senior at Gen. H.H. Arnold High School in Wiesbaden, cleaned and upgraded the POW/MIA monument area on the Wiesbaden Army Airfield.

John, 16, a junior at H.H. Arnold, joins his father as an Eagle Scout. He built picnic tables for Aukamm Elementary School.

Kevin, 15, in the 10th year at the Janus-Korczak Schule in Nackenheim, renovated a picnic shelter area along the Rhine in Nackenheim.

Maj. Gen. Fred D. Robinson, 1st Armored Division commander and an Eagle Scout, spoke and presented coins to the new Eagles.
