Mike, I don't have chapter and verse to quote, but have heard stated many
times that the youth awards can not be worn by adult scouters, only the
square knots. If BSA does not make a square knot for this one then it is
a pretty good guess that they do not expect you to wear it as an adult.
Why not put it on the wool jac shirt?
