Eagle Scout Courts of Honor are (or should be) formal events. Not that
people need to wear tuxes, but they should dress up. This includes wearing
a Scout Uniform or other uniform of a group you represent or participate
in. When people in the military attend formal events where most of us
would wear a suit or what is considered equivilant (in some hot places
suits are not worn very often), the military person wears their uniform.
Are they there to fight a war? Hopefully not! They were invited with an
invitation (which in it self implies some formality) and they dress up in
what is considered their dress (formal) cloths, a uniform.
A girl scout uniform is NOT OUT OF PLACE, nor is the Canadian Scout
Uniform, or (as in my area) a Mexican Scout Uniform, as long as the people are
members of the Girl Scouts, Canadian Scouts, or Mexican Scouts. If you are
ever in doubt, ask the host for a final say for a particular event.
