Typically many units do not purchase the Eagle kit until after the
paper work has been returned. Also, you are not supposed to be able to
purchase a rank or merit badge patch without proof of earning. I went
to the district scout shop in uniform and tried to purchase an Eagle
Knot for my other uniform. The shirt I had on had one, yet the clerk
would not sell it to me without my Eagle card. I asked her why and she
explained the proof of earning stuff to me.
After the paperwork comes back, our unit still has the scout wait until
his COH unless there is reason like Jason mentioned, a photo op or
