Phillip and all:
I totally agree with your statement. If you earned it, you wear it. I also feel the same way about the Eagle Dad's pin. My son earned it, I helped in with much support, camping, anything and everything, etc. etc. So I am very proud to wear it on my uniform. I place it next to the year pin. I know of many other fathers who also wear it on their uniforms.

I used to be an Eagle, and a good old Eagle too!
