Our group, The Vertical Edge, has both a Troop and Post. The Troop have a
class B shirt, worn with black shorts, that has our Troop logo. Climb up...Ski
down...with the Troop # and Troop name. Its grey with 5 colors.
The Post have a black shirt with A large Vertical Edge logo in "hot pink". Our
Post shirt was in very high demand at Scout Camp. All the counselors wanted
one. Traditional Scout shirts have no value to Explorers unless they have some
kind of advancement awards to show or they are part of a "regimented" group
such as Search & Rescue, Forest Service or the Like. Police & fire groups
groups have their own uniforms which are similar to the sponsoring organization.
