Eagle Scout (Boy Scouts of America)

Often people ask me what is the big deal about becoming an Eagle Scout.
Here is some information from Wikipedia, that explains what makes this
award so special.
Eagle Scout is the highest rank attainable in the Boy Scouting program of
the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). A Scout who attains this rank is called
an Eagle Scout or Eagle. Since its introduction in 1911, the Eagle Scout
rank has been earned by more than 2 million young men. The title of Eagle
Scout is held for life, thus giving rise to the phrase "Once an Eagle, always
an Eagle".
Requirements include earning at least 21 merit badges and demonstrating
Scout Spirit through the Boy Scout Oath and Law, service, and leadership.
This includes an extensive service project that the Scout plans, organizes,
leads, and manages. Eagle Scouts are presented with a medal and a badge
that visibly recognizes the accomplishments of the Scout.
The young men featured here have earned their Eagle. What makes this
even more special is that they did their service projects to help Baby
Threads! If you know any young men who might be looking for an Eagle
Scout service project we would love to hear from them.
