In a message dated 97-02-23 00:39:18 EST, you write:
<< The Eagle is the only boy earned award worn as an adult, unless you may
wear you religious award (I don't remember about that). In additon to
your eagle ribbon, you may wear Scouter's Key and Training Award, adult
religious award, etc. >>
Here we go again...I made the mistake of saying there were only three youth
awards that could be worn as an adult, and was told there are at least ten.
My three are: Eagle, Arrow of Light and Religious Emblem. The other seven
include the Hornaday award, the Honor, Merit and Heroism awards, the Explorer
Silver Award and others.
For a good overview, try: http://scout.net/~cardinal/knoindex.htm
As for placement, there is no order, but there are recommendations on
One: Centered above left pocket.
Two: Above left pocket with the ends of the knots meeting centered above
Three: Single row centered above left pocket.
More: Add additional rows over the first row of three knots in the fashion
