Congrats to you rookie. Shows that you stick to difficult tasks until they are done… and done well. You should be very proud of yourself.

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!
