The color guard will put the American flag on the wrong side of the stage, the sound system will produce eardrum-piercing feedback, a presenter will flub his lines. Whatever happens, the best thing you can do is go with the flow.James Shepherd figured that out before his son’s court of honor and talked to his son about it. James...[More]

Eagle courts of honor tend to attract lots of people from the honoree’s (and the troop’s) past, including former Scout leaders. Ceremony planners often wonder whether former Scouts and Scouters should wear their uniforms to courts of honor—and if they’re allowed to do so.Technically, BSA uniforms are only to be worn by registered members. As Article X, Section 4, Clause 1 of the BSA Rules and Regulations explains, “The badges and other official insignia and...[More]
