Jewelry in Uniform
Mon, 22 Sep 1997 20:41:50 -0400
Our Troop Committee recently established a policy that prohibits Scouts
from wearing "visible" jewelry with Class A or Class B uniforms. The
policy was recommended by an assistant scoutmaster and overwhelmingly
adopted by the Committe after a few scouts started wearing earings and
LARGE beaded necklaces.
At the last meeting, one of our senior scouts passed around a petition
recommending that the policy be overturned with the intention of bringing
it to the commitee for reconsideration (the petition was obviously written
by one of his parents).
Does anyone know if BSA national has a policy regarding jewelry in uniform?
Does anyone have a "no jewelry" policy in their troop and, if so, what is
the basis for such a policy.
Your thoughts on this subject would be greatly appreciated.
