CNN — Robert Gates is getting ready for a new gig.
The former defense secretary was elected to the National Executive Board of the Boy Scouts of America.
Gates, a distinguished Eagle Scout, will serve as president-elect, and take the reins for a two-year term starting next May.
He has credited his long-time involvement with the boy scouts with giving him the skills and courage to succeed.
