Early Life Board of Review

In my capacity as a member of the District Advancement Committee, I will
be at an Eagle Board of Review this weekend. In reviewing the
application, and records from the Council Office, it appears that at the
time of the Life Board of Review (2/14/95), the scout had earned only 10
Merit badges (including 7 required MB's). He apparently earned his 11th
Merit Badge on 7/28/95. Assuming the dates are correct, what do we do
Hopefully, there was another MB earned Before 2/14/95, but I doubt that
is the case.
We can't have the Life BoR now and then hold an Eagle BoR in 6 months,
since (1) he's over 18, and (2) the project would have been done while
he was a Star Scout.
Had the Life BoR been held after 7/28/95, he would have had much more
than 6 months as a Life Scout, and met all the other requirements. Can
we include a letter stating the error and asking that the effective date
for Life be changed to 7/28/95?
Any suggestions or personal experiences with this type of snafu?
For those on scouts-l, please respond both to the list and to me direct,
since I get the digest, and want to see the responses ASAP.
Thanks, Yours in Scouting,
