Sons of the American Revolution Honors Four Eagle Scouts
The Sergeant Lawrence Everhart Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) presented the
SAR’s coveted Eagle Scout Award to four Scouts in Kemptown, Maryland Boy Scout Troop 1023 in
ceremonies at Saint Ignatius of Loyola Catholic Church in Ijamsville earlier this month.

McConnell, and SAR Chapter Eagle Scout Award Committee Chair Ryan Bass.
The SAR Eagle Scout Recognition Program honors outstanding Eagle Scouts in local communities.
Eagle Scout is the highest advancement rank in Boy Scouting. Only seven percent of all Boy Scouts
attain the Eagle Scout rank. Each Eagle Scout received an SAR certificate and badge
“The Sons of the American Revolution recognizes the common bonds of purpose and principles shared by
the SAR and the BSA”, states Ryan Bass, the SAR Chapter’s Eagle Scout Award Committee Chair. Bass
notes that the SAR and Boy Scouts participate in many activities together – parades, Patriot grave
markings and Revolutionary War battle ceremonies. SAR members contribute to Scouting by teaching
relevant merit badges, such as American Heritage, Genealogy, Law, Citizenship in the Community,
Nation and World.
The Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) was chartered by an Act of the United States Congress in
1906 “to perpetuate the memory of the men who, by their services and sacrifices during the American
Revolution, achieved the independence of the American people” and “to foster true patriotism”.
The Boy Scouts of America was chartered by Congress in 1916 “to promote the ability of boys to do
things for themselves and others”, and “to teach them patriotism, courage, self-reliance, and kindred
values.” Since its inception, Scouting has taught over 110 million youth its lessons of patriotism, courage
and self-reliance.
