A while back we discussed that the President of the United State's
signature was removed from the Eagle certificates. This is the case
with my son's certificate. He wrote to National about it, and
John Dalrymple, Director of Advancement replied:
"Thanks for your letter, unfortunately we cannot help with your request.
The Boy Scouts of America determined that the Eagle certificates and
cards should only have the name and signatures of our National President
and Chief Scout Executive.
The certificate you received is the only type that we have."
There is no explanation of why they did this but it is a little different
than the answers we had on the list before.
