The Eagle Has Landed

173/365 - The Eagle Has Landed

The Boy Scout program has three aims: character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness. One of the methods to achieve these aims is rank advancement. Eagle is the highest rank in scouting. Very few young men who join the Boy Scout program achieve the rank of Eagle Scout. It takes dedication, commitment, leadership, and planning.


This bench on the Pleasanton Ridge was the result of an Eagle project, one of the final requirements to achieve the rank of Eagle Scout. To successfully complete the project, the scout must plan, organize, and direct a project of significant value to the community. I went hiking after work today and came upon this bench as the sun was setting behind the ridge. These benches are a great place to rest, relax, and enjoy the sunset....thanks to the Eagle Scout who made it happen!
