Eagle Scout Recognition Program


The Marine Corps League and the Boy Scouts of America have for many years enjoyed a special relationship. Many Boy Scouts go on to become Marines. The Marine Corps has benefited from the character, abilities and talents many young men have mastered while in Boy Scouts. The greatest accomplishment for a Boy Scout is to be awarded the rank of Eagle Scout. When a Scout from a Troop in the North Monmouth County area becomes an Eagle Scout, the Phillip K. Dorn Detachment of the Marine Corps League recognizes that accomplishment. At the Court of Honor for the new Eagle Scout, the Dorn Detachment presents the honoree with a Certificate of Achievement from the Marine Corps League along with a letter of congratulations for the Detachment Commandant. On average, about 25 Certificates are presented to new Eagle Scouts by the Phillip K. Dorn Detachment each year.
