Re: B-P Patrol Stars

I was the Patrol Leader of the only patrol to earn the BP patrol star in my
troop. This happened some time ago and the patrol was mixed with another
one. The star was removed because the star means that the patrol shown in
the emblem won the award, not the scout alone. It would also look awful
that some scouts have the star in a patrol and others don't in the same
You can challenge the boys. Ask them to work for the BP star again on the
new patrol. In that way the scouts who earned the star in the previous
patrol do not have to take it out of their uniform and the rest gets to
have it on the new patrol.
I hope I've added my 2 cents.

A quick question for the list to see if anyone can definitively settle a
disagreement between me and one of my PLs.
When a person changes patrols, do they need to remove the B-P stars from
around the patrol medallion?
We have several boys in the troop who will make this change soon, so we
need to set some type of policy.
Thanks for your help,
PS: Thanks to all who sent me congratulatory notes. I would respond
personally, but I am still a bit swamped.
