• Boy Scouts of America Troop 499

    Port Saint Lucie, Florida

In 1964, Rev. O.G. Grotefend sat around a table with four boys at St. Andrews Lutheran Church and told them about Boy Scouts. Rev. Grotefend selected the number 499 for the Troop because his old Troop number was 99. The number 4 represents the District which our Troop is in. 56 years and 72 Eagle Scouts later, Troop 499 is still going strong.

Eagle Pledge

As an Eagle Scout, I realize my obligation to my fellow Eagles, my home, my country and my God. I will at all times do my best to assist other Scouts who are climbing the trail of the Eagle and to give back to scouting more than it has given to me, and to assist my troop as much as possible and to be a living example of the Scout Oath and law to the best of my ability.

Troop 499 has a long history of encouraging scouts to do their best, never give up, and reach for the top.Because of this, we have seen a lot of scouts persevere and earn scouting’s highest rank; Eagle Scout.

Below is a list of scouts that have achieved that goal and will always be counted as a Troop 499 Eagle Scout:
