Eagle is the highest rank a Boy Scout can earn. It requires dedication, time, and demonstrated leadership skills. From Tenderfoot through Second Class, First Class, Star, Life, and Eagle Scout ranks a Scout learns skills that will serve him the rest of his life. Only about 5% of Scouts make it to Eagle.
Photographer Mark Turner earned his Eagle in 1968. He was an active Scout leader with Troop 4003 in Bellingham while his sons were Scouts.
The photo at right is Mark as he prepared to head to the 1969 Boy Scout National Jamboree at Farragut State Park in northern Idaho, which was his first trip to the Pacific Northwest.
