The minimum required number of letters are 3. There are times when a boy can
be required to produce more than that number. That only happens when there
has been a problem with the boy. A case in point, a boy was caught breaking
into a building with some other boys and arrested. He did his serve as
specified by the court. Later he decides he wants his Eagle, now he has a
record and that could cause some problems. The council can require that that
boy obtain letters from the court, his teachers, his religious leader, etc.
I did an Eagle board for just such a boy. He was required to come up with 12
letter of reference. Not only did he do this, he came up with 20+ letters.
He was also required to sit before a special board that consisted of council
and district people. Here again that boy did a good job and as an adult is
still active in his troop.
