My son has become an Eagle Scout.
That is all.
Congratulations on raising a fine young man.
that’s fantastic stuff!! thanks for sharing.
Future president maybe?
Congrats to your son. It is a fine achievement and will benefit him the rest of his life
Mine is on the beginning of that journey (or pre-beginning): he started as a Tiger Cub, and now is in the middle of his Wolf year.
That is all?
That is enough.
Congratulations to him and his family that supported him to reach this admirable goal.
The certificate on my wall says Dec 11, 1974 (it hangs with a bunch of diplomas and stuff....).
One of the best memories of my youth.
It will always be a point of personal pride for him. Probably the first of a line of accomplishments that will make him into a leader of men.
Good for you, and good for him!
He will make someone a fine husband one day; I know mine can fix/do just about anything. We call him McGyver LOL. Congrats!
How proud you must be for raising a patriotic, determined, self-reliant young man. Good parenting - the most important job in America.
A future leader. Wow.
Thnak you for directing me to this Connor.
Congrats! My eleven year old is well on his way to the same rank. You should be filled with pride and joy at such an excellent accomplishment by your son.
Your son is to be commended. I am not an Eagle but know a Scoutmaster and we have talked about all the requirements.
Tell him I congratulate him. This is quite an accomplishment.
Congratulations to him and you for a great job. Becoming an Eagle scout is something that must be earned through a lot of hard work. It is not something that is just given to you. Way to go!
Good job! I know how much work it is!
I only made it to Star, unfortunately. It’s one of my larger regrets.
Congrats to him (and you) from my Tenderfoot (and his mom)!
Congrats! I still put Eagle Scout on my resume. My wife makes fun of me for the resume, but I’m proud of the accomplishment.
I saw somewhere a pyramid diagram that displayed the percentage of kids that earned the Eagle rank compared to the kids that start scouts. Something like 2% make it to Eagle. Along with that was a list of highly sucessfull men who had been Eagle scouts. Good for your son.
Plus the Eagle patch will be for the 100th year of scouting.
Congratulations from the father of three. He will always be an Eagle Scout.
Is that the highest cub-scout rank?
Three fingers up!
Congrats my FRiend, nothing like those proud father moments!
Congratulations Grey Whiskers to the whole family...
... for your Cub, it will be a long road, but enjoy every curve! Take pictures and save the projects, as they deserve to go on display when you have an Eagle Ceremony.
My guy only has his Eagle Board of Review, but it doesn’t look like the Council will get him finished in the 100th year.
Still a great milestone... which needs to be finished up as all the High School activities pull him away from scouting. Looking for the next step like civil air patrol which he got excited about doing the Aviation Merit Badge.
A distinction which will follow him the rest of his life. Tell him, “Well Done!”
My son just turned 3, but I hope that I may make a similar post in the future. :)
An achievement that will serve him well in life. Congratulations Dad !!
Well done! A lifetime achievement. I always look for job candidates who played a varsity sport or gained the rank of Eagle Scout.
You both have my respect. That’s a great achievement in what will hopefully be a long road of successful endeavors!
Congratulations! It will become more important to him as he grows older!
Congratulations to your son. He is in rare and great company.
Hopefully in about a year I’ll be able to post the same, and then maybe four years later.
We’ve got one Life and one who is one requirement away from Second Class.
