I am presently a Unit Commisssioner. I am and Eagle Scout, 1962, with Gold
Palm Vigil Honor, various awards in cubs and as a Scoutmaster. Boy Scout
Woodbadge, Cub Scout Trainer's Woodbadge and Seabadge trained.
My only comment on Mr. Ratcliffe is that he should be treated as he has
treated this scouter. My friend called to check on my application for the
National jamboree, the clerk mistakenly thought that the friend was a
"professional" and told my friend that the application had been flagged.
After talking with the Director for the National Jamboree, my friend was
unable to even get National to notify me of my not being accepted or even of
the reasons, which involve my reporting Youth Protection violations at our
Summer Camp where there was an alleged sexual abuse during this past summer.
