About a year ago I became Advancement Chair for my son's troop and after
looking at the records I found.. well I found a mess... so I tbegan to
reconstruct decent records.
When developing records on each Scout I used many sources including every
4403 I could find in this big box...
what I found was that about three Scouts, who were currently Life rank
had spent on four (4) month between Star and Life.. not the required six (6)
someone thought it was 4-4-6 and not the actual 4-6-6 months....
Lucky none had put in Eagle apps yet ......
It is amazing how many people... people in charge... don't read the book....
