You wrote and asked:
>> 1. Where does the Eagle medal go on his Scout uniform?
Centered on the left pocket flap of the uniform. If you see where the
buttonhole is, the Eagle Scout medal should cover that hole up and should be
pinned right above the top edge of the pocket flap.
>> 2. What is the tiny loop where the cloth attaches to the metal for?
To remind your son to Do A Good Turn Daily. It's part of the Medal.
Just make sure that it's straight...but be careful; it's a very thin piece
of silver wire!
>> 3. Is there anything else I need to know since I won't be able to
>>run home to take care of it?
Just relax and have a great time at your younger son's Eagle Scout Court of
Honor. And please pass along our combined congrats to him!
