The Eagle presentation kit contains an Eagle medal, badge, mother's pin,
tie tac and a tie tac for the new Eagle. Extra mother's pins and dad's
tie tacs are usually available from councils. A sterling silver
presentation kit is available through special order.
In my council (Capitol Area in Austin), the Eagle presentation kit is
provided by the council and usually paid for by prominent business
people. Each new Capitol Area Eagle also receives a membership in the
National Eagle Scout Association. This is provided by a fund endowed
anonymously in memory of Lon Sailers who served as Scoutmaster of Troop 70
in Dallas for 38 years.
To each new Eagle, our troop provides:
1. An Eagle Court of Honor and reception.
2. Letters/certificates of congratulations from local, state and national
3. Frames for the Eagle and NESA certificates.
4. A videotape of the Eagle Court of Honor and reception.
5. A United States flag flown over our nation's capitol on the day of the
Eagle Board of Review. This is obtained through our Congressman's office.
6. An Eagle neckerchief (#02557) and slide (#02505).
7. "I'm Proud of my Eagle Scout" bumper stickers for parents (#02549).
8. A book titled, "Eagle Scouts in Action."
The 2000 BSA catalog <http://www.scoutstuff.org/> contains several nice
items appropriate for presentation to new Eagle Scouts.
