Eagle Scout Ceremony - 26 May 2013
**** GALLERY IS A WORK IN PROGRESS CHECK BACK OFTEN FOR UPDATES ****
On this very special day, at the "Hereford Volunteer Fire Department", family and friends gathered for yet another milestone that has been achieved by Sean Demchak and 4 other fellow Scouts! "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 Boy Scout Oath has three main clauses which are good to remember and may help you understand that the oath is meant to cover all parts of your life: "DUTY TO GOD AND COUNTRY, DUTY TO OTHER PEOPLE, DUTY TO SELF".
A Scout who attains this rank is called an Eagle Scout or Eagle. The rank in scouting consist of "Tenderfoot, Second Class, First Class, Star, Life, and then Eagle". Since its introduction in 1911, the Eagle Scout rank has been earned by more than two million young men. The title of Eagle Scout is held for life, thus giving rise to the phrase "Once an Eagle, always an Eagle. "This special award is presented proudly by each of their Parents, with the motto "Be Prepared" stamped on the medal. We all are so very proud of you with what you have accomplished in such a short period of time and wish you nothing but success in your future endeavors. Way to Go! Enjoy!
