TRIPLETS TEAM UP TO ATTAIN THEIR EAGLE SCOUT RANKING

Fewer than 2 percent of Boy Scouts rise to the rank of Eagle.

Chris, Mike and Fred Collard are accustomed to beating the odds. After all, just 1 in 8,100 pregnancies results in triplets.

The Collards were honored with Eagle Scout awards Wednesday night -- possibly the only time a set of triplets has simultaneously earned the Boy Scouts of America's top honor.

Pledging themselves to the ideals of citizenship and hard work, the brothers rapidly accumulated the 21 merit badges required for the Eagle award. They helped each other with their Eagle Scout community projects, which included mapping the graves of war veterans.
