I know I'm gonna get in trouble for this:
Some years ago, I was at camp with my friend who had been a Life Scout as a boy. He was just returning to Scouting as his son was of age.
We were walking through Scout Camp and he was wearing his Life badge on his shirt. One of the uniform police came up to him and said, "You can't wear that on your uniform!"
My friend's reply was, "Really. Dock my pay."
Moral: it's probably good to have at least one complete and perfectly correct uniform ... but, if your wearable shirts ain't perfect, let 'em dock your pay! (Let's not get TOO outrageous!)
Adult leaders are allowed to have fun in the program.
Yours in Scouting
