Hey Mike or anyone else...
I'm not at home now, so I can not look at my patches, but when I went to
JLT (twice in the mid-late 60s) I received a six sided patch, dark green
background, red letters JLT or JLTC, and I think the two green bars of
the patrol leader. I was sent by my SM so I could (first time) come back
and really hellp the troop and (second) so I could return as a JASM.
Now for the question, what was the course, how long was it, and how long
in years did it exist with that patch?
Just wondering with my fingers...
Steve Myers, JLT at Bucskin Scout Reservation some time in the 60s.
