This is the one you want on your shirt and your resume.
That's where my son says he wants it! :-)
Thanks for correcting in my absence.

(He will bring us goodness and Light.)
Being an Eagle Scout helps on college admissions. The Marines make it an immediate promotion to PFC in boot camp. It is a mark of accomplishment on a resume that can put you in line for an interview when others are passed over. While it tilts the odds in your favor, you still have to perform. The practical skills learned in pursuing Eagle Scout are the things are have lasting value in everyday life.
Good luck to your son. Tenacity pays dividends.
