I heard it this morning. Good story, and a rare thing. I haven't heard of a scout doing this in a few years and from my understanding there have been less then 100 scouts to ever earn all available MBs. OF course, National doesn't track this, though this scout may garner an article in Boys' Life. I recall such an article when I was a scout about two brothers who had earned all the MBs of that time period.

SSScout,

 

Thanks for posting that article. It is great! I'm going to print it out and give a copy to each of our scouts.

 

If anyone else sees such a good article about scouts and scouting, please post it here. I'd like to read it.

 

Have fun Scouting!
