Local Eagle Scout Project Gives Back to Veterans on Veteran’s Day

When it came to his Eagle project, 15-year-old Nate Maurer of Blackman Scout Troop 374, knew he wanted to do something that would benefit the veterans in our community. After considering the TN State Veterans Home, and talking to the administrator there, Maurer chose to beautify a courtyard that residents and families can enjoy. 

With a very generous donation from the Murfreesboro Home Depot, Maurer was able to get lumber and garden supplies to be used for his project. He built two benches, weeded and mulched, and planted multiple flowers and shrubs, making the courtyard welcoming and usable. Maurer had the help of his parents, grandparents and two fellow scouts, which made the project even more special. 

When Maurer was asked why he chose to honor local veterans for his Eagle project, he said, “I appreciate what the Veterans Home does for the veterans and I wanted to do my part and help out. Our veterans have been through so much and they deserve to have something nice.”
