Mike, there was a young man in Olney, Texas who earned ALL of the MB's back in
the early 80's. I wasn't involved in scouting then so I can't remember the
name. At the time national said that they didn't keep records of who "got em
all" but that they had heard of only six or seven in the history of USA
>From what I remember of the story he was a typical scout who finished Eagle
early (no, lets don't start that thread over again) did the OA Vigil thing, and
got that first palm and "just kept on going". He was a member of National Honor
Society, Drum Major of the Band, Student Body President, National Merit Scholar
I don't know what happened to him but he will probably be President of the
United States or just about anything else he wants to be.
