HISTORIC EAGLE SCOUT TRAIL

  • It is more than a medal.

  • You have a chance to be a part of history.

  • Now, it is your time to seize the day and write Scouting’s next chapter.

  • Americans from all walks of life know that being an Eagle Scout is a great honor, even if they don’t know just what the badge means.

  • The award is more than a badge. It’s a state of being and character. You are an Eagle Scout – ‘never were’. You may receive the badge as a young person, but you earn it every day as an adult. In the words of the Eagle Scout Promise, you do your best each day to make your training and example, your rank, and your influence count strongly for better Scouting and for better citizenship in your troop, in your community, and in your contacts with other people. And to this, you will pledge your sacred honor.
