Completely random...

Are any of the members on here current or past members of the BSA? If so, how long were/have you been involved? Did you make Eagle? Do you feel it had a positive or negative impact on how you live your day to day life?

My brothers an eagle, does OA, but is now in the Coast Guard. I got to life, but stopped after that. It was beginning to be too much politics for me.

I made it to Eagle with a lot of push from my dad (I didn't get a car until I earned my Eagle). I was always more interested in camping and the other more fun parts about scouting than earning ranks and merit badges Rolling Eyes

I tried to get in, but they were too judgmental...

Something about "You shouldn't be smoking you are only 8"

For gods sake, I thought this was America

Eagle scout here. Scouts helped give me additional exposure to the outdoors on top of what my father and grandfather gave. When I was young and applying for jobs I put "Eagle Scout" on my resume and received positive comments, and it also was mentioned a couple times that it helped me receive a job.

That's awesome, guys! I'm an Eagle, as are both my brothers and my father. It definitely had a great impact on me as an adult.
