Does this still exist? I was under the impression that girls were
allowed to earn Merit Badges as Explorers, just that they couldn't be
used for rank advancement. I have a few posts in my Council that use the
MB program for a few things (First Aid MB is great for those EMS and
hospital Explorers out there).
