It was fitting that when Gerald Ford arrived home, alongside the road, there were men who call themselves his brothers.
"We scouts stick together. A brotherhood, a community," said Kirk Sheren, an Eagle Scout from the Chief Okemos Council of Boy Scouts in Lansing.
10 Eagle scouts from mid-Michigan were among approximately 350 who greeted the motorcade carrying President Ford's remains in Grand Rapids, at the Ford Family's request.
"From one eagle scout to another. That's how I see it," said Spencer Long, another mid-Michigan Eagle Scout and graduate of Holt High School.
Hundreds--with and without that badge--stayed to visit the president's casket inside the musuem. They waited 2 and 3 hours for that chance all through Tuesday night and into Wednesday, until 11 am.
