Thanks and congrats to you and your family as well. It's a rare thing.

I joined when I was just turning 16 because I wanted to go camping. Messed around for a couple months, but then had some 13-14 year olds who were higher rank than I was telling me what to do. That didn't sit well so I started getting serious. Then I hit every time minimum on schedule and ranked up fast. Motivation helped, as did being older since I was able to use my HS teachers as counselors for merit badges like chemistry and environmental science.

I didn't get a chance to serve in many leadership positions nor attain any palms as I literally made Eagle a month before I was 18 and termed out of Scouts.
