(I hit the "send button" too soon...sorry...)
To answer Bob Cutting's question:
>SOME OF MY SCOUTS RECENTLY WERE AWARDED, MILE >SWIM, SNORKLING, PAUL BUNYON
> CAN THESE BE WORN ON UNIFORM AND WHERE.
None of these are uniform items.
The Mile Swim and Snorkling BSA emblems are designed to be worn on the
Scout's swim trunks. That's where I had my Mile Swim emblem.
That's the same place where the Aquatics Instructor, BSA and the Scout
Lifeguard emblems go as well.
The Paul Bunyon Axman Award goes on a Scout's backpack or blanket or on a
patch jacket or vest. The same goes with the full color Historic Trails and
50-Miler emblems. The leather emblems only go on a backpack.
The reason why those items are NOT worn on the uniform, Bob, is because
these represent program items above and beyond what the average Scout or
Venturer does as a participant in the program. These special emblems are
designed to be worn where people in and out of Scouting will see them...in
the case of the Mile Swim and Snorkling BSA emblems, on the swim trunks.
Hope this helps, and sorry for hitting the "send key" too early...
