Greetings From the President

Standard

white-house-postcard

Back in the dark ages (or the good ol’ days, depending on your perspective), getting a congratulatory card from the president of the United States for your newest Eagle Scout meant writing a letter, affixing a stamp, and dropping it in the nearest mailbox. (You remember: that box on the corner that vaguely resembles a blue R2D2.)

These days, as is the case with so many tasks, all you need to do is go online. Specifically, just surf over to https://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/presidential-greetings-request and fill out the form that appears on that page. You’ll need your honoree’s name and address, although you can check the Send Care Of box and provide your own address as well. Select “Eagle Scout” from the What Do You Want Us To Send? dropdown list, and enter the court of honor date in the Comments box. The White House Greetings Office tries to mail cards two weeks prior to the event and typically requests six weeks notice.
