I got a question from a fellow scoutmaster here in the Great Trail
Council. Gary wants to award a silver palm three months after the
Eagle. Essentially, the scout is making the request and waives "his
right" to the bronze and gold. Facts: the scout already has 58 merit badges
and shows no evidence of slowing down. Comments?
Does the scout have to wait 9 months, ie, 3 to get the bronze, 3 more to
get the gold and 3 more for the silver?? If the answer is no, then in 6 months
this scout will have 2 silver palms (21 for eagle + 15*2 for silvers = 51 --
recall he has 58 already.)
