Eagle and beyond......

My son expressed to me the other night his wishes to earn all of his
Eagle Palms! (Much to my surprise, because despite being very active
and a good outdoorsman, as evidenced on this summer's Philmont trip,
he hasn't earned an Eagle-required badge in about three years).
This led us to ponder how many Scouts stay active after earning Eagle.
Our young troop has had four Eagles, and we've lost all of them to
jobs, sports, girls, and cars [but I'm not sure in what order these
should be listed ;-)].
Our question to all of you is: How many of your Eagle Scouts stay
active and how many of them go on to earn Palms? We currently have 6
Scouts working on Eagle (5 Life and one Star) and would really like to
keep all of them!
I'll try to summarize and post the responses. Reply privately, if you
would, so I can post one message instead of the group posting a whole
bunch of messages. I'd like to help Jon keep it below the limit of
