Read Stephen Colbert’s letter to an Eagle Scout

Earning the Eagle Scout award is “quite an achievement,” says Stephen Colbert. But more than that, writes The Late Show host, earning Eagle is “the first steppingstone toward having your own TV show.”

That’s how “Dr. Stephen T. Colbert, D.F.A.” begins a hilariously awesome congratulatory letter to a newly minted Eagle Scout.

The letter provides plenty of laughs — plus a glimpse at Colbert’s feelings about Scouting. Read it below. At the bottom you’ll find the mailing address for the show — a place to send your own fan mail to this famous fan of Scouting.
