    are adult leaders supposed to be wearing merit badge college patches; I thought they might only be for the scouts?

    patrol patches

    I notice some of the adults in my daughter's scout troop wear patrol patches from previous scouts units they've been involved in. I am an asst. scoutmaster in my daughter's unit and they're about to get their patrol patch for the 1st time--they're a new troop. am I supposed to wear the patrol patch as well?

    red Wool Jac-Shirt

    I was looking around on the internet and was surprised to see that the "red wool jac-shirt" is still an attainable item through bsa/ebay. that thing's been around since I was a scout in 1991 and probably way before. what is the story behind that shirt? it seems it's got a "Mountie-feel" going on, but there's bound to be some history.

    Adult Religious Service Award

    while I was in the military (in 2005), the catholic archdiocese of military affairs asked a bunch of us soldiers to hop onboard several scouting activities to do field stuff with the scouts. after our time was up, catholic archdiocese of military affairs and catholic scouting organization gave us the "Adult Religious Service Award" knot as a thank you. they offered no paperwork and I have no physical proof of receiving the award [paperwork]. Personnel from the catholic archdiocese of military affairs have been promoted and moved onto better things. they have no record of issuing this to us, nor does the catholic scouting organization. if I wear it, am I out-of-uniform? 2005 is a long time to expect anyone to hold onto those kinds of records.

    neckerchiefs

    are assistant scoutmasters authorized to wear the troop's neckerchief? I wore mine in my old troop to set a uniform-standard for the scouts to follow after, but my new troops I am assisting in seems to look down on it.

    heritage-representation

    some of us Minnesota scouts like to show-off our Scandinavian heritage. is there any rule that says we cannot wear a Norwegian pin on our uniforms?

    state flag patches

    are state flag patches allowed on the uniform, beneath the American flag? I see some states, like texas, doing and others not.
