The Trail To Eagle

The heart badge was then placed on your uniform. You will never forget your thoughts at that moment. This feeling has been experienced by all Scouts on reaching the ledge of Life Scout: “Now I am close to the Eagle, I will 

carry on.”  The trail bec

ame tougher, but more interesting. The original principles, the Scout Oath and Law, now had a fuller meaning. Your understanding of them was greater.


We watched your character unfold as you became a man.  We watched your leadership expand into a valuable asset.  We have observed your mind develop and your wisdom increase.  We have guided all these things in you and now that you are on the threshold of your goal, we welcome you, for you have done your climbing in a true Scoutlike manner.
