As an "old" advancement chair (retired/promoted to CC), I can tell you that
what I recommend to each boy (at the Tenderfoot BR, at each subesequent BR,
at the first merit badge) that they keep the blue cards in a very safe
place. For each Eagle application from our troop, I suggest that the
applicant photocopy the pages from his book, and photocopy the blue cards
(put them in a Baseball Card page, throw it on the copy machine). I call it
"preventive documentation" and falls well within the motto "Be Prepared."
If you attach that stuff, there can not be any question!
