Our Eagles

"Once an Eagle always an Eagle"

The title of Eagle Scout is held for life, thus giving rise to the phrase “Once an Eagle, always an Eagle.”

Webster's dictionary describes an eagle as a large bird of prey with sharp vision and powerful wings, famous for their strength, size, grace, and keen vision. It is the national emblem for the United States.

In Scouting, the eagle stands for strength of character, and for knowledge of all phases of Scouting. The eagle represents an understanding of community and nation, and a deep respect for same. The eagle is a symbol of what a young person has done as well as what that young person will do, and will be, as they grow into an adult. The eagle is a leader. The eagle is respcted, both by his peers and by his adult leaders.

The honor of becoming an Eagle Scout has always carried with it a special significance, not only in Scouting but also within higher education, business, the military, and within our community. The award is a performance-based achievement whose standards have been well-maintained over the years. Eagle Scouts represent dedication, perseverance, and Scouting at its very best.

  • In 2019, 61,353 scouts earned the rank of Eagle Scout

  • On average about 5% of scouts go on to earn the rank of Eagle Scout

  • From 1912 to 2019 - more than 2.5 million Scouts earned the Eagle Scout rank.

Troop 28 honors those Eagle Scouts that have been a part of this unit by preserving their names for future scouts within the Troop to look toward as a model and a goal to aspire toward.

Many of the Troop's early records are incomplete...
