How often can this award be earned??
Referring to the Insignia Guide, which states, "beneath patrol
patrol that has met the standard." I would read this as you
may earn this
award one time for the patrol you are a member in.
What do others think?
I read this as you can earn the award as many times as you earn the
Each 3 month period is a new time frame. It's not as easy as it
The requirements for the award are as follows:
- Have a Patrol name, flag, and yell.
- Hold two patrol meetings every month.
- Take part in at least one hike, outdoor activity, or other Scouting
- Complete two good turns or service projects approved by the Patrol
- Help two patrol members advance one rank.
- Wear the full uniform correctly. (At least 75% of patrol's
- Have a representative attend at least three Patrol Leaders' Council
- Have eight members in the patrol or increase patrol membership over
the previous three months.
We've got patrols in our troop that have earned this award several
times having met ALL of
the criteria when they have. And personally, I don't see why they
needed to change the
name from the Baden-Powell Patrol to the National Honor Patrol. It
was very appropriately
