The true meaning of an Eagle Scout is defined in what a Scout is. The quick answer is the twelve points of the Scout Law, a pretty easy and simple answer, but not the entire answer. An Eagle Scout is someone who shows character by his “actions”. Many people are confused by the material characteristics of the award. The list of “have done’s” are impressive, but the “will do’s” is what people should see when they see an Eagle Scout. We can talk about massive projects, endless Merit Badges, long hours of camping and challenging High Adventure programs, and we should be proud of those accomplishments.
