Re: Where to place an Eagle Palm?

At my understanding, the Eagle Palms are worn on the Eagle medal in the
blue, read and white ribbon only.
The palms are worn according to the amount of merit badges the scout has
earned BESIDES those required at the time of his board of review (i.e. 21
or 22). Each palm color stands for a number of extra merit badges acquired
and the palms values together is added. Let me explain:
A bronze palm means 5 extra MBs
A gold 10
a silver 15
If a scout has 20 merit badges more than what required he wears the
appropriate combination which is: SILVER and BRONZE only.
He could also wear 4 bronzes which wouldn't fit the amount of colors in the
ribbon of the medal, or
he could also wear 2 gold palms.
This is the same as service stars. You don't wear all you've acquired, you
just wear the most recent or a combination that reflects your amount of
years (for example I have 4 in Cub Scouts and 4 in BSA). Get my point!
I hope I've added my 2 cents.

Might seem like a silly question... but where on the uniform is the
proper/correct place to place and Eagle Palm? I have seen them both
placed onto the Eagle Rank Badge and above the left pocket... like a
and in anticipation... if the Scout has 21 + 20 badges, where does he
place the two (2) pins? ((this is is case someone says... center it
on... or place it in the center of......))
