To the editor:

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. This is the Scout Oath.

• At no time is the Scout Oath more proven to be adhered to then when a Boy Scout earns the rank of Eagle. To earn Eagle, Boy Scouting’s highest rank, a Scout must not only be a troop leader, earn 21 merit badges, and execute a large scale community service project, but he must be committed to the Scout Oath. If he weren’t, he couldn’t possibly be able to achieve all that is needed.

• Friday, Oct. 20, not one, not two, but three Scouts in Troop 200, Annandale, passed a rigorous board of review to become Eagle Scouts. These Scouts - Nick LaBelle, Zach Nemeth, and Brinton Gibbons - have different leadership styles, different Scouting interests and lead very different Eagle projects. Their commonality of living by the Scout Oath, along with hard work ethics and drive, earned their place in the ranks of the fewer than five percent of Boy Scouts that earn the Eagle award.

Troop 200 meets Mondays at Immaculate Conception Church. For more information about Troop 200 see us on Facebook or visit www.boyscouttroop200.org. For information about Scouting visit www.BeAScout.org
