Elsewhere, you are right on the dollar, That is exactly what he would do. But for some reason and I never ever knew the reason why, but my ex husband was not allowed to pioneer as an auxillary or regular for that matter. He would never tell me why. I do think it was because of the way he treated me and our son.
He was never home ever only to sleep and eat other than the meetings we never seen him as he was always in the service. Some months he had over a 100 hours but they wouldn't include him as an aux. I think my ex was diffently hiding something from me.
