The Scoutmaster of my Wood Badge class...now a friend..and the Council
President here..told me after this type of an inquiry as to why someone
would not wear the other awards considering the fact that he wore the
silver beaver. His reply was to me most profound. it was "John, afterall
doesn't the one award speak for itself and the others?" I tend to agree.

hanging device speaks for botherhood and vigil. Do you know what it takes
to get that professional Knot? I would imagine quite a bit.
just my two cents worth.
