I'm sorry to bring this mess up again, if preferred, anyone who can answer
my question can reply privately so as not to use up list time...
Here's my question......I had a Mom in our troop ask me about the new Eagle
requirements. It seems her son completed the Safety merit badge before the
April changes. Now, Safety is not a required badge. She's wondering how
this would be handled. Can this badge still be used toward Eagle, or is it
now just an extra merit badge.
Another way of asking this is, her son is a First Class rank now, he
completed Safety because it was an Eagle requirement. Can he continue
working from the old requirement book, or does he need to start working
from the new one. At what point does the Scout switch from the old to new.
Apparently, he completed this merit badge because it was an Eagle
requirement. If this Safety merit badge no longer counts toward his Eagle,
how do I explain to his Mom.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated....
