As you begin to go for Eagle Scout, the first rank that you must achieve is Star. You will notice that the requirements for Star rank are very different from the last three ranks that you have completed. This is because you have finished most of the scout skills that you will need to know, and will begin to teach them to the newer scouts that are just joining the troop now. You will soon find yourself in a position of leadership, be it patrol leader or historian, den chief or quartermaster. Hopefully you have been to summer camp before, and have already started working toward the six merit badges required for Star. You also may have required community service for school, a great way to check off requirement 4. You are farther along on the path to Eagle than you think!
