RE: [Scouter_T] proper atire for Eagle ceremony
- I agree with Scouter Fisher. Do as the Eagle recipient asks.
I would expect that the "official" answer would be that if you son is
not registered, then he would not wear the uniform. However, I think
that the uniform could be worn, especially if your son is also an
Eagle Scout. He should not wear the Eagle badge on the left pocket,
and wear the Eagle medal instead. No other "youth" awards should be
worn. If your son spent any time as a Scouter after turning 18, he
might have the Arrow of Light, God and Country and Eagle knots.
Those would be proper. If the uniform will not fit or is showing age,
then a suit would be fine, but an Eagle Scout is always and Eagle
Scout, so I would tell a young man to wear the Eagle medal with the
suit, or some other Eagle identification. But, my opinion is like a
nose, everyone has one.

Have your son ask the Eagle recipient. If the uniform fits and the
Eagle Scout wants you son to were it, who cares if he's registered or
not! Hang the policies and procedures and the Uniform Police, it's the
Eagle Scout's special event, let him make the rules.
