That's why you need two signatures besides the Scoutmaster's in order to
have the advancements recorded (per the Advancement form). If there is
any question of impropriety regarding the other two Board of Review
members signing the form, it should be brought up to the Head of the
Chartered Organization or the Chartered Organization Rep. that some of the
actions of registered leaders, whom =they= approved, are questionable.
I realize I may be ruffling the feathers of some Eagle Scouts (no pun
intended), but when my son earns his Eagle rank, I will =know= it is
earned. I really don't care what other boys do. If another boy receives
his rank unmerited, he is the one who will go through life not knowing
everything he should have learned. I put no stock in titles, including
"Eagle." I look at the person's actions, not at what somebody else tells
me he is.
