I heard that the varsity unit was integrated into the troop because so many
troops wanted it that way, and that the unit option was kept because some
strong voices wanted that option (the LDS church?) I heard that the varsity
would have been migrated totally to the troop, except that the option to
keep Varsity units was insisted upon. Has anybody else heard this?
When I was Scoutmaster (I'm a Cubmaster now), we had a "V" patrol. This
patrol chose whether to work on Varsity or Venture activities for a given
time period, and wore both types of pins on the same letter. Other than
type of activities stressed (sports for Varsity and High adventure for
Venture) I couldn't see much difference in the program anyway.
