Thanks for pointing out something I need to do some more research on,
A Scout is OBEDIENT... A Scout follows the rules of his family, school,
troop, and (BSA policy). He obeys the laws of his community and country.
If he thinks these rules and laws are unfair, he tries to have them changed
in an orderly manner rather than disobey them.
..... Maybe this policy needs changed!
A scout is HELPFUL... A Scout is concerned about other people. He does
things willingly without pay or reward.
..... If I have too, I will register in any Scouts council who wants to earn
this merit badge as a counselor, and await that council's advancement
and, a Scout is BRAVE... A Scout can face danger even if he is afraid. He
has the courage to stand for what he thinks is right even if others laugh at
or threaten him.
..... In reference to your signature block arrow (see below)... Order of
the Arrow Handbook "clearly states" on page 59, Uniform and Insignia...
quote-unquote, "The sash is worn over the right shoulder...so that the arrow
is pointing over the right shoulder... It is not to be worn in any other
manner." On lodge pocket flaps and everything else printed, embroidered,
stamped, or shot to the moon, etc., with an OA arrow, the arrow always
points to the viewers left!
