The item you described is commonly called a "dangle" in my area and is worn
on the right pocket of the BSA uniform by members of the Order of the Arrow (OA)
Given that it has been discussed numerous times, I will not attempt to explain t
he OA here but it is basically a society of honor campers to which a scout
must be elected by his troop and which is dedicated to "Cheerful Service."

Subject: help identifying a trade
My son (a Scout) went to a Council Camp in Washington State this summer.
While there, he did a bit of trading. One of the things he got is a
mystery to me....Can someone identify it?
It is a loop of red/white ribbon, about 2" long, with a metal button
loop at the top and a small pewter-colored arrow at the bottom.
Any ideas what this might be 9and how it might have been earned)?
