The problem is that there are units that qualify for the award that do not
have a quality program. Since this is the case, the requirements need to be
reevaluated so that when a boy joins a troop that has recieved the quality
unit award, he can be assured that he has joined a unit that has a quality
program; maybe not the best, but one for which it is worth sticking around.
I believe that many here (including myself) are arguing that what National
has set for it seal of quality is to low. If I am going to buy meat that
has a seal that says it is quality meat, I want that seal to mean more than
"It won't make you sick", I want it to say, "It tastes good".
