There have been several posts on how long it takes to get paperwork back from National. Here's another twist: After everything my son went through with his troop, he got all requirements done before 18th birthday & had EBOR before 90 days were up after aging out. Paperwork was back inside of 3 weeks! BUT, certificate said he earned Eagle through the crew, not the troop (different unit #, different district). Since he did the advancement through the troop, he wanted it corrected. Answer from Council: Troop registration expired in Dec. (son aged out in Oct., EBOR was in Jan.). Council didn't have his adult registration with the troop on file yet. Crew was the only unit he was registered with, so that's why they used it. We have an email from Council stating a scout must be registered at time of EBOR.
What is he hadn't chosen to register as an adult or been a member of a crew? Would all have been for nothing? Request for correction was made mid-Feb., have not received back yet.
