The Eagle achievement standards require an enormous amount of time and work and as a result less than 5 percent of all Boy Scouts become Eagles.  Greenwich Scouting is honored to recognize Eagle Scouts that planned, developed, and lead local service projects that helped improve the Town of Greenwich and Greenwich organizations. The "Gathering of Eagles" portion of the Annual Eagle Recognition Dinner is particularly exciting as the title of Eagle Scout is held for life, offering a memorable experience by meeting with fellow Eagles of all ages. The rank of Eagle Scout was first awarded in 1912 and has since been bestowed upon just over two million young men.  Successful Eagle Scout recipients can be found in many different professions, including over 40 astronauts, particularly Neil Armstrong, businessmen such as Sam Walton the founder of Walmart, public officers like President Ford and entertainers such as Steven Spielberg.
