Sorry Russ, but I've got to say that is one of the worst ideas I've ever
heard from this list. First, the borad wouldn't get letters from people who
wouldn't give the Scout a good recommendation - the Scout and his
Scoutmaster ask people to write them. Letters of recommendation should be
given to the board, read, then returned to the Scoutmaster for inclusion in
whatever package the Scout is given during his Eagle COH. The make a great
keepsake and let the Scout know, after the fact, what people he respects,
feel about him. In addition, I can't imagine someone writing a letter of
recommendation for a Scout and not expect the Scout to eventually see it.
To destroy these letters is a terrible disservice to the Scout.
