Gee, and I've got boys who are Star who still have their First Class patch
on their uniform. And it is not uncommon for Eagles to have their picture
taken for the newspaper...with their Life patch still sewn on.
Can't go by patches on uniforms for everything, especially boys. And we've
beaten to death on this list the fact that Scouting doesn't check for
immaculate uniforming, etc, before taking pics.
