Patrick Taber asked about Cub Scout service stars.
It's not a silly question. At the end of his year as a Wolf, he gets a
1-year star, but it doesn't go on a blue background. The correct background
color for Cub Scouts is yellow.
At the end of his year as a Bear, the 1 on yellow should be replaced with a
2 on yellow. At the end of his first Webelos year, replace the 2 on yellow
with a 3 on yellow. At the end of his second Webelos year, replace the 3 on
yellow with a 4 on yellow.
At the end of his first Boy Scout year, add a 1 on green to the 1 on orange
and the 4 on yellow, then increment that number after each successive year.
The total of all service stars should equal the number of total years in all
phases of the program. For years he is registered as a Varsity Scout, the
background is brown, and for Explorers it's red. The blue background is for
years as an adult Scouter.
The total of all stars should equal the total number of years in all phases
of the program.
