Former Boy Scout Alan Eckert in 2000 standing on the Four Corners National Monument.
Ten years ago, Alan Eckert was on the verge of earning the rank of Eagle Scout, but at the same time he was also coming to terms with his sexuality. Because of the policy against gays in the Boy Scouts of America, Eckert quit.
Now a 28-year-old living in Albany, California, he's shocked that the BSA is considering a change to that rule.
