September 1, 1995) has been posted and is now available from the Scouts-L
file list. All of the CURRENT Boy Scout files have a filetype of BSAREQ95.
I've updated the BSAREQ files to include the 1995 changes, and added some
other info from the front of the book. They are in the same basic format
as last time. GENERAL is a new file, containing the information in the
FRONT of the book, and the list of current Merit Badge Pamphlets.
All the others replace the files with the same names in BSAREQ93.
