At the request of Gerald Ford's family, some 350 Eagle Scouts lined Pearl Street Tuesday afternoon during the funeral procession.

Ford was the first U.S. president to become an Eagle Scout. He later went on to earn the Distinguished Eagle Scout award.

It's a special award, given only to Eagle Scouts for service in their profession and community at least 25 years after earning the initial Eagle Scout rank.
