The leadership requirement is a serious one, and not to be overlooked. A
potentially greater problem is the requirement that a scout be "active in
the troop." Clearly, this young man has not. If there is time before he
turns 18, he can earn the rank. If not, I would express my sincere
regrets and tell him he just waited too long.On Wed, 21 Aug 1996, W. W.
