    • The Guide to Advancement defines the term "qualified" Venturer or Sea Scout: Anybody can complete the requirements [including me, and I am too old  LOL!  😛  ], but to officially earn the merit badge, rank, or Scouts BSA awards, one must be a registered Scout or Lone Scout [in the Scouts BSA program], or a qualified Venturer or Sea Scout.  Please note that the Sea Scout requirements do not say "earn the X merit badge", they say "complete the requirements" or "pass the requirements" for the X merit badge.

    • Definitely could be a better design.  for my son, i took a small length of paracord and created a loop that went around the metal piece, and the epaulet went through that loop.
