Not at all, Bob...some folks choose not to post that information and others
haven't been through the Wood Badge experience, and therefore are really
confused (especially when those pesky Eagles post "I used to be an Eagle and
I'll always will be an Eagle!" or similar statements).
And some of us live outside the US, in which their country's Wood Badge
program is like Germany's (at least like the DPSG's Scouting program...heavy
on the program, light on the "cutesy things") and so the name of their
Patrol has little significance to the fact that they completed the training.
