Eagle Scouts Court of Honor
The Veterans of Foreign Wars has recognized The Boy Scouts of America as the nation’s foremost youth program for character development and values based leadership training. We in Chalfont Post 3258 appreciate the mission of the Boy Scouts, which is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
The VFW has been associated with the Boy Scouts since 1915 and the Chalfont Post since 1996. It has become a tradition for the Post to recognize the accomplishment of those young men who have reached the rank of Eagle. Those Scouts are presented a certificate by representatives from the Post at their Court of Honor, which reads:
Veterans of Foreign Wars
Certificate of Recognition Awarded to
(Scout’s name and Troop number)
For outstanding achievement and exceptional leadership ability evidenced by his attainment
of the rank of Eagle Scout.
The certificate is signed by the Post Commander and Adjutant. Then, on behalf of all Post members, the representatives attending wish the Scouts continued success in all their future endeavors.
