    who fulfill the requirements for gaining Eagle Scout rank before turning 18 but who can't have the ceremony of receiving it until afterwards - I know of at least one person who was probably at least a month over 18 before he properly got the rank.

    And after 18, the view of the BSA at the national level is that those scouts are so much a threat to younger scouts that they cannot serve as officially sanctioned role models. Including at their own Eagle Scout ceremonies.

    Yeah, that's going to be a problem, logistically...

    Prayers and best wishes to those in Boston, in Texas, and for this week to be over without anything else happening.
