Broken Arrow Memorial Ceremony

Recommended Posts


((I pass this on to our OA brothers, everywhere))


The Order of the Arrow Broken Arrow Ceremony for Courtenay Marshall will be held on

Sunday, June 14, 2015 at 5:30PM

at the Transfiguration Episcopal Church , 13925 New Hampshire Ave, Silver Spring, MD.

Light desserts will follow the ceremony in the Parish Hall.


Scheduling conflicts greatly delayed this meaningful ceremony and, while a year has gone by

( he passed away Sunday morning, June 8, 2014), it is only right that we honor the life of our

colleague who dedicated so many years to Scouting, the Order of the Arrow, and the community.

Mr. Marshall was a longtime Order of the Arrow Adviser, Vigil Honor,

Assistant Scoutmaster with Troop 1444 and active at the district level.

His presence is still missed.


This ceremony is open to both OA members and non-members. All Scouts, Scouters, and the public are

welcome. It is appropriate for Scouts and Scouters to wear their uniform or appropriate civilian

attire. All OA members, in uniform or not, should wear their OA sash.


As an Assistant Scoutmaster of Troop 1444, Mr. Marshall was the epitome of a servant leader and

beloved by those who truly knew him. In turn, Mr. Marshall loved scouting and the Order of the Arrow. He was a regular attendee at troop, district, chapter, and lodge functions and meetings for over

three decades.


If you have never seen this unique Broken Arrow Ceremony, it is both touching and symbolic.

Please come to say your scouting goodbye and honor the scouting life of our friend and adviser.
