Troop 750 was founded in 1971 under the leadership of Tom Ogletree. The Troop has always been chartered out of Covenant Presbyterian Church, located in Marietta, Georgia. Troop 750 program runs year-round and typically features one campout or activity each month, in addition to normal meetings that take place each Monday at 7:15pm. The Troop actively recruits young men from the Cobb County area, where it demonstrates community service by participating in the Adopt-A-Mile program on a section of Piedmont Road. Please check out below and the Troop 750 History page for more information.
The Red and White Neckerchief
The red and white neckerchief was developed to identify Troop 750 members. The proper way to wear it is to have the red on the right side. Due to its color it can also be used as a semaphore flag. The neckerchief has been flown over such places as Antarctica, Mt. Whitney, Mt. Mitchell, and base camp at Mt. McKinley.
The term "Greenies" is a name for the new scouts and the patrol they are first put in. The name is actually due to the green bill on the hat they are presented with at crossover. Once completing second class they can wear the Troop 750 red beret.
Summer Camp T-Shirts
Summer Camp T-ShirtsColor coded summer camp T-shirts began with the Troop's out-of-council adventure to Camp Mac Morris, located in Tennessee, in 1997. Each year the Troop picks a different slogan to put on the shirts.
Each Eagle Scout is listed on a plaque in the meeting room. It has become a tradition to award each new Eagle Scout a walking stick at their Court of Honor to help them on their way.
