But that makes them non-uniform. Rank patches, yes, OK, but if we're
going to be hard-nosed about it, the Army in Peoria and the Army in
Alaska don't differentiate.

Works best in a troop where the incoming boys aren't bigger than the
out-going ones. In our troop all the older boys weigh in at under a
hundred pounds, while most of the new ones come in at or over. A 38x26
boy can't wear a 30x32 pant. Nor can a 30x32 boy wear a 38x26 pant.
And, unfortunately, our newbies tend to come in alternate waves of 38s
and 30s. :(
