Eagle Scout Program
The United States Marine Corps has always been a proud sponsor of young men who attain the grade of Eagle Scout. A member of the Marine Corps League, Griswold Mountain Detachment 1121 Oakhurst CA represents the Marine Corps at Eagle Scout Courts of Honor upon invitation from a local Scout Master. Detachment 1121 of the Marine Corps League has appointed and maintains a liaison with local Boy Scout Troops in the Oakhurst-Coarsegold-Ahwahnee area. Typically, the new Eagle Scout receives the SUPERIOR ACHIEVEMENT AWARD signed by the Commandant of the U. S. Marine Corps, and the GOOD CITIZENSHIP AWARD from the local Marine Corps League. The parents of the new Eagle Scout receive the AMERICAN SPIRIT AWARD in recognition of their dedicated and exceptional support of their son’s development, activities and education. These awards, suitable for framing, are printed on embossed paper and presented in a folder bearing the Marine Corps anchor, globe and Eagle symbol.
