Tyler Osmond, Troop 1344, eighth son of Alan and Suzanne Osmond, recently achieved their family’s goal for all of their sons to earn the rank of Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts of America organization.
After all eight finished the cub scout program where Alan served as Cubmaster and Suzanne as Committee Chairman, Suzanne remembers making and racing many fine crafted Pinewood Derby Cars. Each Osmond boy then started training as a Boy Scout and learning to serve others, to be “helpful at all times”, to “Be Prepared” and to live the “Scout Law”.
It started with the first son, Michael. This tradition and goal continued among their family with Nathan, Douglas, David, Scott, Jon, Alex and finally Tyler. Father Alan, a veteran in the Army, taught his sons crafts like archery and shooting skills. He presented each of his Eagle sons a .22 rifle with their Eagle Award.
Ronald Reagan told Alan several years ago that, “a boy who achieves an Eagle Scout Award has one of the best achievements that can be listed on his resume that shows achievement and leadership in his youth!” There are also no better values to be learned, especially in today’s world, than to be Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave Clean, and Reverent!
