Edward "Kirk" Ucinski IV received an unexpected surprise from a well-known Hollywood celebrity. Star Trek's Captain James T. Kirk, Mr. William Shatner, took the time to send him a congratulatory tweet for earning his Eagle Scout. Little did anyone know, that scout would become the American Legion's, Department of Missouri, Eagle Scout of the Year for 2019.

Thank you, Mr. Shatner for taking the time to congratulate this young man on such a monumental accomplishment. It is something that he and his family will never forget. Live Long and Prosper.
