Is this not a gross technicality though? I would have a problem if
National just decided to reposess my Eagle Insignia and all other
insignia for my BSA and OA careers - especially since I paid for it - if
it is the official property of national - then there should be some
official national lending and trade program where uniform parts and
patches are issued and maintained by National. This idea though is
almost as ludicrous as taking away an award that a Scout has already
earned. There are other, better ways of dealing with problems.
