From a PAST experience with letters to National, DON'T bother.
You can expect a rahter NASTY reply, like, there is NO evidence
to support your idea, and WE (BSA) have already studied this
and OUR study shows OUR way is best! You can aslo expect your
"negative" attitude to be reported to your council! So, be aware
before you act.
I also liked the fully embroidered trained patches with gold or
silver mylar borders and I know many SM's that still seek them
out. I also gave up wearing a "trained" strip, and recently after
I lost a position, that I had been "TRAINED" for, I removed BOTH
position and trained strip. I do wear the knots for the Key and
Training awards. But, since I was recently asked IF I would like
to consider a unit comissioner slot, what would be the point of
sewing something else on for now, or until I complete the RE-training
process as a comissioner, which I also understand HAVE TO BE REMOVED
for WOODBADGE training. I gave up! For some time, I have just
accepted ONLY the formal title of DAD! Since I serve on several
committeeS, but have RUN nothing for a year or so, several people
like me also thought of some generic position patches, or a NONE!
But just as we got them designed to order, BSA revented (?) to TAN.
UGH! Who thinks the TAN position patches look as sharp as the
FULLY embroidered???? NOT ME - wait sounds like a position patch
in the works - a NOT ME patch! As in who's in charge? NOT ME !
don i, still a DAD of an NEW Eagle scout!!
