My memory is similar to that of Joe Ray Hawkins, although I don't remember
any activity pins -- just Wolf, Bear, Lion, "Arrow of Light" award (which I
believe was called the Webelos badge at the time), then into Scouts. It
was a very long time ago (very early 60s), but it seems that the "AOL"
award was somewhat of a coda to the Lion badge -- e.g., you had to memorize
the Scout Law, Scout Promise, Slogan, etc. However, with 35 years of
cobwebs in my memory, who knows what really happened?
(My parents no longer have any of my books from that era, nor my uniforms.)
