It took many years but Joey Neimon became an Eagle Scout on October 13, 2013.  The story does not end there, Joe’s continued commitment to Boy Scouts and his community has earned him the Eagle Scout of the Year Award from Delafield’s American Legion.  Troop 49, chartered by American Legion Post 196 of Delafield, Wisconsin proudly proclaims it has guided 65 young men over the years to the rank of Eagle Scout, Joey is number 57.  This lifetime goal is recognized by the American Legion and it awards members who have met the following Eligibility Requirements.
