Hello all. I attended a large gathering in my local BSA council this weekend. (I am still a registered scout leader) It got me thinking about how many other TC'ers earned the Eagle rank in scouting. I joined scouting in 1972 and received my Eagle Scout award in April, 1977. I also earned bronze, gold & silver palm awards. My older brother is also an Eagle. This thread is for a roll call of Eagle recipients. It can be for yourself or your son. Also if you have a picture of yourself in uniform as you received your award, that is welcome in this thread also. PLEASE,PLEASE, anyone who is thinking of making some rude or suggestive reply concerning child abuse or molestation in the boy scouts....DON'T reply to this post. The BSA is working hard to educate leaders in Youth Protection training. Speaking for my Unit and District, we take the subject very seriously. Thanks. I am looking forward to seeing a list of fellow Eagle recipients here.
I once was lost.....but now I'm found.....

Does it count if you were working on your final Eagle project (everything else was completed) and then the entire troop disbanded leaving me S.O.L. ?

Are there any women here who earned the Girl Scout equivalent of Eagle Scout (I think it's called the Gold Award)?

I never made it past cub scouts. Football became too much of a distraction.

My big brother is an Eagle Scout so I had to marry one too. Jay got his back in the 80's. He is a cub scout leader here in Chicago because in his own words: "Pinewood Derbies Rock!" Although, I suspect he longs for the day when he can go camping with the boyscouts again and play with fire.

I am an Eagle Scout. Class of 1987.

Scouting was some of the best memories of my youth. I know what you are all thinking but it wasnt like that at all.

Incredible adventure, ruthless hazing, and lawlesness every time the adults left us alone.

Sort of a lord of the flies type thing.

Oh and I learned a few things too.

My brother received his Eagle in 1983.

My 2nd nephew received his Eagle in 2002.

Me too! Precisely the same.

I'll never forget the pipe tobacco smell from our scoutmaster Mr. Snow, and when he died a few years ago it was about as sad as I've ever been.

Eagle Scout here with three silver palms (1983). Still partially involved with the Denver chapter of the National Eagle Scout Organization. I go to about one function a year, usually a career fair and promote the engineering industry to younger kids.

Eagle Scout? Hah! I don't think I ever made it to Wolf in Cub Scouts - I must have gotten hooked up with the wrong troop or something...we never did anything fun like camping or playing with knives and I used to cry everytime I had to put on the uniform and go to another meeting! I do admire those who graduated to Boy Scouts and worked to achieve the rank of Eagle Scout...in fact I'd have to say I'm amazed with the sorry experience I had with scouting!

Yeah, fellow Eagle here, class of 1991.

I really enjoyed the scouts and made a few very good friends. Scouting was particularly uncool in my home town, so it was sort of a secret society for us. I didn't particularly care for the military aspect of scouting and the other scouts (and scout masters) felt the same. I know the scouts reputation has gone down hill as of late, but what kept me in was the fact that every troop was different. Had I been in another more regimented and less openminded troop, I probably would have quit. We were the troop every year at camp that would look the most disheveled, but win the most awards. Too much fun.
The best part about scouting were all the camping trips and hiking trips we took. I think I hiked the entire Long Trail in Vermont and camped at most places from Maine to Rhode Island during my scouting years. Good times, good memories.

BTW - did anyone actually earn the "Rabbit Raising" merit badge?

sorry, I forgot to mention that my brother also received his in the class of 1987 too.
weird, no?

I was an Indian Guide and got looked down by boy scouts with their fancy earth tone uniforms and as for rankings I don't think I'll even make it past Tiki Centralite do they give merit badges for carving?

I don't remember what rank I finally made, but my Mom was our Den Mother in Cub scouts (meaning I aways got in trouble).

I knew I'd never make Eagle scout as I didn't sell illicit drugs. I do still have my uniform somewhere though. It has a collar unlike those collarless ones nancy-scouts wore.
