Bill Hartman of Wilmington said it took him 25 years to complete the required 21 merit badges, community service hours and his final project, WPVI-TV, Philadelphia, reported Thursday.

Hartman, who in the past competed in the Special Olympics, said he was inspired to finish his Boy Scout rank-climbing by a neighbor who became an Eagle Scout in 2002. He said he hopes his accomplishment will inspire others.

"They can do the same thing if they put their mind to it," Hartman said.
