In the old days, he’d get promoted to E-2 or E-3 instantly when he joined the service, but I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone these days, especially a hard-charger like this kid.

Considering how much of an overachiever he is he’ll either rise through the ranks of the military pretty fast or he’ll be successful in business.

Eagle Scouts are expected to set an example for other Scouts and to become the leaders in life that they have demonstrated themselves to be in Scouting. As such, they are disproportionately represented in the military, service academy graduates, in higher education and academia, major professions, the clergy, business and politics.[37][38]

Eagle Scouts who enlist in the U.S. Armed Forces may receive advanced rank in recognition of their achievements.[39][40][41]

Adult Scouters who earned Eagle Scout as a youth may wear a square knot emblem with a red, white, and blue striped square knot above the left shirt pocket; the medal may be worn on formal occasions.[25] Eagle Scouts may join the National Eagle Scout Association (NESA), which serves as a fellowship and communications board for all Eagle Scouts.

NESA directly administers several Eagle Scout scholarships.[42] The American Legion,[43] the National Jewish Committee on Scouting,[44] and the Sons of the American Revolution[45] offer scholarships directed toward Eagle Scouts. Many colleges and universities, local businesses, churches and other organizations may offer similar scholarships.

The NESA Outstanding Eagle Scout Award recognizes Eagle Scouts who have demonstrated outstanding achievement at the local, state, or regional level.

The Distinguished Eagle Scout Award is given only to Eagle Scouts for distinguished service in their profession and the community for a period of at least 25 years after earning Eagle Scout.
