I hold Scouts to a higher standard than I do non-Scouts. Or to put it
differently, Scouts are closer to the level that I wish everyone was.
What's that standard? That's easy. Trustworthyness, Loyalty, Helpfulness,
And I hold Eagles to an even higher standard. But not a different one.
The same one but more so.
Resumes, job applications, etc are all well and good. The question is
_why_ does putting "Eagle Scout" on a resume give an advantage? Because
through the years people have learned that Eagles can be held to a higher
standard of Trustworthyness, Loyalty, etc.
