You can order the Insignia Control Guide from the Supply Division by
calling 1-800-323-0732 and asking for No. 3064A "Insignia Control Guide".
It has a lot of answers, but Mike is right in saying that it doesn't
answer all of them.
In our area we have interpreted the requirements to mean that as long as
the leader has one year of BSA service, the leader can wear a star
combining all youth and adult service in scouting (including Girl Scouts).
BSA may have meant to limit the stars to BSA only, but did not choose to
say so explicitly. We reason that if they had intended to limit, they
could have said so. In the absence of a prohibition, we have interpreted
with a view towards recognizing all Scouting.
