Scotland M. Garrick of Inver Grove Heights has achieved the rank of Eagle Scout.  He is the son of Post 594 member and United States Army and National Guard veteran Robert Garrick.  Scotland was awarded his medal at a Court of Honor held in Cottage Grove on May 31.  Attaining this rank is a true reflection of Scotland’s values, character, determination, and focus, as he joins an elite group. Only 2 percent of all members of the scouting program since 1912 have attained the Eagle Scout rank.  In recognition of this special achievement, Post 594 recently awarded Scotland with a resolution and an accompanying American Legion ‘Good Citizenship Citation’. 

Scotland just graduated from Simley High School and his future plans include serving in the U.S. Army National Guard. To honor his decision, Post 594 also recognized Scotland with a ‘Military Commitment Certificate of Commendation’, accompanied by a United States Army service-branch pin.  Following Basic Training, he will then be moving on to specialized training in the field of Air Traffic Control (ATC) Operator (Military Occupational Specialty 15Q) at Fort Rucker in Dothan, Alabama.
