?4. Subscribes to the Scout Oath and code of his or her respective program.
?5. Participates in an appropriate program based on the member's age.
This is correct. The kcker is that, by including a member on your roster as
"active", you are certifying that they do, in fact, meet these requirements.
In other words, it's not that National takes the position that dues-paid -
active, they take that position that the unit said he was active when they
included him on the roster, so you can't change your mind after the fact.
