Monte - Give him a little time to think about it, then ask him one more
time, pointing out that he came this far why stop now? Let him know that
one of the most successful men in America, Walter Chronkite, was once
interviewed and asked if he ever had any regrets . . . he said that his
only real regret was that he turned 18 one MB short of Eagle. If the
Scout still says no, well be proud of him for being a Star Scout; many do
not reach that pinnacle. Good Luck!
