The Eagle Scout Award

Eagle Scout MedalThroughout the State, the SUVCW currently has 24 Camps in various localities in both Upper and Lower Michigan.  Each of these Camps is located within one of the eleven Boy Scout Councils in the State of Michigan.   

One of our many goals and purposes is to reward young men who achieve the status of Eagle Scout with a special congratulatory letter and color Certificate of Commendation, signed by the Department Commander and suitable for framing.  While we encourage any young man searching for that special community service project to look to us for inspiration on projects relating to the Civil War, we offer this certificate with no “strings attached” other than you must be an Eagle.

Your Eagle Court of Honor observes a very proud tradition that our organization is pleased to recognize, in memory of the GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC (GAR).  Comprised of over 400,000 Union Veterans of the American Civil War of 1861-1865, the GAR was a living symbol of patriotism when the Boy Scouts of America was formed in 1910.  Before the passing of their last member (on August 2, 1956) the GAR officially recognized the SONS OF UNION VETERANS OF THE CIVIL WAR (SUVCW) as their Legal Heir.  As such, it is our honor to maintain the many traditions of the GAR.  These include the promotion of good citizenship by teaching patriotism, civic duties, and the love & honor of our flag – concepts that are “near and dear” to the Boy Scouts of America.
