READ Natiunal's 'award (i.e. Arros Light) in it's context. It is the
highest advancement award in Cub Scouting, and is the ONLY advancement
allowed to be worn on the Boy Scout uniform.
By the way - adults can NOT wear the eagle rank patch even if they are an
eagle. ALL advancement recognition is for the boys, not the adult. As
adult holding Eagle wears the appropriate ADULT recognition (knot).
Hope this helps.
