Yesterday, Mike Walton said that a Boy must earn 11 required and 10
additional Merit Badges for Eagle.
Actually, its 12 required and 9 others (since Family Living was added to the
required list on 9/1/94).
He also said swimming is no longer required. The MERIT BADGE is not
required (the Scout can use Sports or Personal Fitness instead of Swimming,
and Emergency Preparedness instead of Lifesaving), BUT He must still pass
the Swimmers test to reach First Class unless there is a medical or other
safety reason which prevents this.
