I can't, for the life of me, find this in the Webelos handbook.
Seems strange that a requirement of the Citizenship badge - #8 citizenship belt loop would be completely left out of the book. Am I crazy and just not finding it?
Thanks - jd
It's an optional program for Cub Scouts, but since some of the belt loops are now more integrated, it would be nice if necessary information was available in the Webelos handbook.
