If you earn your Eagle Scout rank in 2012, you’ll get a special commemorative rank patch.
2012 is the 100th anniversary of the first-ever Eagle Scout, a young man named Arthur Eldred who earned his Eagle in 1912. So, if you earn your Eagle during the 100th anniversary year, you’ll get a patch that no Eagle before or after you will ever earn.
The special-edition patch will be available at Scout shops after the first of the year.
Remember: Planning and executing an Eagle project takes time. Start working on yours now!
