Milt, my wife wears the minatures that have attaching rings as her earings.
We have had two Eagle sons so far. Seems the other will make it to, so I
will get her the necklace for him. She also wears a full Cub Scout or Boy
Scout Leader uniform. Occassionally I see the mom's eagle pins, but not
often. She also wears a white blouse, gray slacks, white blouse, and
BSA scarf without the ornaments.
