I think what Ornel Cotera had in mind was a ribbon that would correspond to
the present rank insignia that is sewn or pin attached to the uniform. The
Sea Scout would have a choice of wearing the sewn on insignia, the metal
insignia (as with Quartermaster or Eagle) or just wear the ribbon. The
ribbons would transfer from one uniform to another because they clip on in a
block. No need for duplicates or attaching one to each uniform.
If the Sea Scout likes the insignia as they are now, they continue to wear
the patches they have, like Boy Scout insignia and Boy Scout knots. If they
prefer to wear only a small ribbon for each award and not wear the other
insignia that would be the individual scouts or individual units choice.
There would be ribbons designated for rendezvous and other special scout
events. At present these events have no insignia. Some of them have T Shirts,
Etc. In the old days, rendezvous and regattas had patches.
This is not a matter of forcing anyone to wear ribbons, but rather giving
units that desire a choice to wear a miniture ribbon insignia instead of the
suspended metals, and cloth patches.
