Albany- 15 year old Patrick Chandler Berg has been a boy scout since he was 12 years old. Sunday, the Deerfield Windsor High School student was awarded the honor of Eagle Scout.

"It's good because I can go back to the troop and help the younger scouts and still not be that much older than them. A lot of people in my own grade I can still go back and help," Berg says.

Less than 4% of all boy scouts ever earn the rank of eagle scout. Some of the nation's most famous men were eagle scouts including Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, Director Steven Speilberg, and Former President Gerald Ford.
