I wouldn't want to "steal" this Eagle if he is able and willing to work
with a troop. But if he can't or isn't comfortable working with the
troop, there are plenty of opportunities to serve on a district level
where his health should be no problem. In my district, I know of
committees that would be delighted to have his help; and since he is an
Eagle, I would probably like to snag him myself for a Commissioner. I
know that committee work is more boring than camping, but it is also
necessary to deliver a quality program.
