It meant a lot to him when he "crossed over" to Boy Scouts, and he especially enjoyed doing a lot more camping -- including those below zero temperature "Polar Bear Campouts". Scouting is a great program, and helps boys become well-rounded young men with merit badges in academic areas, survival skills, and civics. I really believe in the values they promote, and I'm especially proud of my son for going all the way and achieving the highest rank.
In the photo he is taking the Scout Oath one more time before receiving his Eagle.
On my honor, I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.
