Merit Badges at Troop Meetings

All too often we emphasize the "required" badges and feel that they are
more important than "other" badges. (I am guilty of this myself.)
More than once, my wife has had to point out to me that there are NOT
11 badges required for Eagle, there ARE 21 badges required for Eagle.
To relegate the 10 chosen at the scout's option to a lesser position is
to shortchange the scout. Every merit badge is important and every
scout earning it should earn it completely and honestly.
