From 1 Eagle (1968) to another…Congratulations, well done. Once you are an Eagle, you will always be one and the feeling of pride you have now never goes away. Welcome to the group.

Rookie,

Congratulations! I earned my Eagle Scout in 1980 (only the second one in the Troop that I belonged too. My friend earned his Eagle Scout 6 months before me) and I know the hard work and determination required to follow through. Definitely an achievement for you to be proud of. Congrats again!

Congratulations Chris!
You’ve joined the 1% of young men who began a Scouting journey and who completed and earned rank of Eagle. It’s really a great achievement. Now the work begins. You’ve got the rest of your life to live as an Eagle Scout and give back to Scouting and society in general as others who came before you have done. Welcome! I was awarded my Eagle in 1964. It was the same badge that was awarded to my Dad in 1940 and was subsequently awarded to my son in 1998. It’s something to be proud of and cherished. Congratulations to you!

-- Tom, Tyler, TX

Earning the rank of Eagle is both major accomplishment and a lifetime achievement. As you know, you are an Eagle for life and this will serve you well forever and it should be on your resume for life. Being an Eagle will give you an advantage not only in seeking employment but for any other endeavor you pursue. At the same time, you now have the responsibility to represent all that being an Eagle Scout means. . .for life!

Well done, Eagle Scout!

Way to go!!! Congrats on the drive to finish it. From what I have read only 3% of all scouts make it to Eagle in the US. I am glad that I was one and that you have joined the elite!
