I appreciate all of the comments about the wearing of an Eagle rank
insignia. I wish that I had had an opportunity to earn one; but maybe
some day I will have a couple of Eagle Pins to wear.
Another question please:
In one response, I noted that a troop withheld all rank patches until a
COH. I had thought that the rule was clear that they should be awarded
ASAP. I serve as SPL for our Scoutmaster Fundamentals course, I part of
my presentation is to tell the new Scouters that these should be awarded
at the same meeting at which they are earned if possible.
I have had the understanding that this was the prevelant, if not only,
way this is handled.
