OK, I pointed out to all of you that Chris was right and you shouldn't be
handing these letters of reccomendation out (and there don't even HAVE to be
letters, each council checks references its own way) but why isn't every SM
out there writing a letter to the references from the Scouts app and saying
"Johnny passed his Eagle BOR and we will present the award after it is
approved by National. Would you like to include a letter of congratulations to
the boy since you were part of the reason he received it?"
Solves it for everyone, doesn't it? If they don't want it public they won't
respond and the letters can be destroyed by the council after the BOR without
anyone ever asking why they didn't get their third references letter back.
