Scoutbook Internationalization - USPS zip code not available

The BSA promise is that Scoutbook services will be available to all units. Why does Scoutbook continue to require units, scouts and scouters to have USPS assign zip codes? Not all of them have them, I suggest checking what the BSA membership database supports. Apparently Scoutbook and BSA membership programmer analysts are not on the same track.

My understanding is that some BSA tools now shift to an international format if the country is not the USA.
