Richard Hood is the father of Justin Hood , a Paoli 1 Eagle Scout and SPL. He joined the Troop with his son in 2004 and quickly became heavily involved in troop activities. He is one of the few Paoli 1 parents who has earned the Triple Crown; he went to Sea Base in 2008, Philmont in 2009, and Northern Tier in 2011. Unfortunately, with the graduation of Justin in 2011, Richard admitted at Northern Tier that he was "sad to have this be the last summer trip with Justin". Luckily, although his activity has decreased, he still supports the Troop in its endeavors.
