There is a provision for a "SCOUT MASTER" assigned position of
leadership that can be used for Eagle.
Any scout master that does not HELP his scouts to achive Eagle
has failed in his own leadership role!
If there is a personal conflict with the SPL he would NEVER
have assigned a leadership job to this scout!
What has the SM done to HELP?
still an Eagle, used to be an Owl, old and feeble staffer, NEW grandpa
