					Letters of Congratulations to New Eagle Scouts

Last Updated: January 18, 2008
This list contains the names and addresses of prominent U.S. and Texas
leaders or groups who will usually send letters or certificates of
congratulations to new Eagle Scouts. Be sure to send a request to your
State Representative or Assemblyman, U.S. Congressman, U.S. Senators,
Mayor, City Council, County leaders, etc. as many of these will send
nice letters.

Expect a delay in requests sent to Washington D.C. as mail sent to
Governmental officials and agencies is still being processed for Anthrax
decontamination.

To identify your Senator or Congressman, see this web page:
http://www.congressmerge.com/

Permission is granted to distribute this list to other Scouters as long
as this is done without charge.

Please DO NOT send requests to the CIA, Secretary of the Air Force, J. Willard
Marriot, William F. Buckley, NASA Johnson Space Center /Astronaut Office,
Justices of the United States Supreme Court, Pat Boone, Boeing Corp., Air Force
Recruiting Service, the Commissioner of Baseball, and William J. Bennett as these
have asked to be removed from this and similar lists.

Another list with e-mail addresses, suggested formats for letters and additional
information to help with Eagle Courts of Honor may be accessed at this web page
maintained by the U.S. Scouting Service Project:

If you identify additional individuals or groups who will send letters or certificates,
please send the information to:
