NORTH CAROLINA – Rex W. Gallegos, who began his Boy Scout journey in Fallbrook Troop 731 in October of 2010, recently completed his Eagle Scout project in North Carolina.

Gallegos led a group of 25 youth and 10 adults over a total of 117 hours to promote and collect items in the Harrington Grove area to assemble 245 rack packs for distribution to service men and women through the USO of North Carolina. The donation amount totaled $5,040 worth of goods.

to help on one distribution day during a recent deployment and he was able to see first-hand how this affected the troops and how thankful they were to have the basic essentials for their journeys.

According to Gallegos, his effort would not have been possible without the help and support of 4-H of North Raleigh, BSA Troop 352, and Fallbrook BSA Troop 731, in addition to many others.

"I will always remember what a community can accomplish together and be grateful for that," said Gallegos.
