You wanted to use that story to motivate your son... Well here is a
30th anniversary of someone who did not get it!!!!!!
30 years ago the "National Council" did away with "Air Explorers"
(Old Blue Uniforms)... Several of us who (as teenagers thought we
knew it all) decided to quit because we wanted to keep our squadron.
Our Squadron worked on both the air explorer awards and the rest of
the Eagle requirements. So I quit 3 merit badges short --- HAVE
REGRETTED IT EVER SINCE. ESPECIALLY AS MY SON TOSSED IT BACK AT ME
WHEN I WAS TRYING TO GET HIM TO FINISH!!!.
