As I remember, from doing this with my scouts, the Eagle applicant does
not write the request for letters of recommendation, the Eagle Board
does. The scout merely supplies names and addresses of people he knows
or who know him well enough to write this type of letter.
I was asked by a boy's Eagle Board once to submit a letter of
recommendation, and I had to reply that I could not, as I had not seen
him for over six years and that when I did see him, it was for about
six months in my troop, then he moved away.
