Yes, that's my point.  I'd think any Boy Scout youngsters with the Radio 
Merit Badge should be a 'shoe-in' for a Tech license any time any day 
per the FCC.   I know there must be many Scouts that have that badge 
presently.  And they so need to be nurtured into the ranks by Ham Clubs 
in contact with their local Boy Scout Headquarters per proper protocol.

At my age now I'd flunk that merit badge evaluation in a New York second 
I'm sure.  <Grin>  Our ranks must remember that teaching inquisitive 
youth is paramount.   These youngsters with the support of their Scout 
Leaders and Parents need to be "Elmer'ed". And to carry on the (as we 
all know) the greatest hobby and service known all over the world.

PS Those young men are out there waiting for someone or group to guide 
and grow them into the ranks.
