Brag alert. Our nephew just received rank of Eagle Scout this month, with an induction ceremony celebrating the milestone.
Becoming an Eagle Scout is the highest achievement attainable in the Boy Scouts of America program, with only 4% earning the rank across the nation. One must earn at least 21 merit badges (Christopher has 36), and demonstrate “Scout Spirit, an ideal attitude based upon the Scout Oath and Law, service and leadership.”
His service project? Leading a team to rebuild outdoor tables for a local Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) club, complete with military service emblems for each.
