A number have you have asked me to let you know the end result of my
situation where a Scout was allowed to join a troop before he was eligible,
earned Swimming merit badge during that period, and then had his Eagle
application questioned by national.
We supplied national with a statement from the troop that they believed he
was qualified to join when he did and that this happened with a prior SM.
Apparently the explanation was adequate because I just received his
certificate in the mail today from my local council office.
Thank you all for your concern and for your suggestions. I will file them
in case I have to face a situation like this again in the future, although
I hope not.
