I did not see a personal email address in your message, so I am
answering you on the open net on purpose.
Your message is exactly correct. As a 19 yr old Eagle, or a 72 yr old
Eagle, an Eagle is the knowledge and skills gained by attaining the
material badge. It is NOT the badge.
In fact, in training our adult advancement people, we STRESS that the
ranks are NOT the goal --- the learning, stretching, reaching, and
growing is what this is all about --- the badge is just that, an
outward sign of all that has been learned, achieved, reached!
I admit your message hit straight to my heart --- there are real
Eagles in the world, and you, Ben, are indeed one of the best.
Thanks from a lady who has "kept the faith" for years, just for young
men like you.
