Please don't consider this a flame because it is not intended as such.
I have never considered a young man that has dedicated a significant
portion of his life on the requirements for Eagle as having just done
enough to get by. I would consider a scout that goes to meetings and on
campouts but never advances in the category of one who just does
enough to get by.
My son is and Eagle with the minimum requirements. What he
accomplished far outweighs what so many others older than he have
managed to accomplish. The experience has made a man of the boy that
started the long trail. He often says that he took the road less traveled
and that has made all the difference.
