Congratulations Bear!

You earned Eagle Scout back in the day when parents didnt go much out of their way to help,, thats not the case today,, at least not in my neck of the woods.
Back then Eagle Scouts were few and far between, today there is a few every month or so in the local newspaper.

Dont get me wrong,,Eagle Scout is still a Great Achievement today,,but parents do a lot of the ground work,,at least in my neck of the woods.

I never got far in the Scouts,,our Scoutmaster turned out to be a Faggot! And camping was a whole different event! The Fucking Pervert!

Was that photo of you as a child printed on a textured wall?

Congrats on the longevity and the accomplishment!

I am 56 and my hair is still dark but once i was in hospital and could not shave, my beard was pure white. My Gawd it was a relief when i managed to cut it off.

Never liked beards for myself but the look good on some people, especially McB

Congrats!!!!

My son's are Eagle Scouts!
I'm very proud of them both!

Sad to say there are some parents out there that can't sit back and let their son prove himself to be qualified to be an Eagle Scout, but as for our troop, most do.

It is encouraged to stand back and let the Scout do all the work.

After all, becoming a Leader is what it is all about.

Congrats to all Eagle Scouts! It is NOT an easy accomplishment.
