Boards of Review for all except Eagle are not a pass fail situation. The
Scout coming before the board has already demonstrated his worthiness.
The Boards job is to make the Scout comfortable, talk about what he
learned, what his likes and dislikes in the Troop are, etc. If the Scout
is not demonstrating Scout Sprit his requirement should not be signed
off. To send a Scout before the Board and reject him is sending him the
wrong message, i.e. gee, I completed the requirements, why didn't I pass?
