is preparing to present himself to a Board of Review as a candidate for Eagle Scout, the Boy Scouts of America’s highest rank. Narragansett Council, BSA requires three reference letters be included with the Eagle Application. Your assistance is requested in evaluating just how the Scout lives the ideals of the Scout Oath and Law, and how he has developed and demonstrated leadership in his daily life. The specific requirement is that he “Demonstrate Scout spirit by living the Scout Oath (Promise) and Scout Law in your everyday life.” THE SCOUT OATH:

“On my honor I will do my best, to do my duty to God and my country, and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.”

THE SCOUT LAW:

“A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean and Reverent.”

While we do not expect perfection, we do expect that each Scout will try to do his individual best each day. Of all boys entering the Boy Scouts just over two percent will earn the rank of Eagle Scout. Your assistance in evaluating whether this candidate should be awarded the rank of Eagle is appreciated. Please write a brief letter indicating his conduct, attitude, and efforts to develop himself as a leader and a quality citizen. Does he live by the ideals of the Scout Oath and Law? Your assistance is necessary to help us insure that we recognize only those Scouts who are deserving of the rank of Eagle. When you have completed the letter, please seal it in an envelope and return it to the Scout for delivery to his Scoutmaster. Thank you for your assistance and for being an important part of the process of selecting a boy who will represent himself as an Eagle Scout for the rest of his life. Sincerely,

Dennis Rekrut Council Advancement Chairman DR:jlr
