Boy Scout Life Information


Life Rank

Life Rank

> > > Triple Prizes < < <

Continuing to develop leadership skills, the Life Scout rank is earned by fulfilling additional leadership positions, service hours, and merit badges. A Life Scout is expected to be a role model and leader in the troop, providing guidance to new scouts and helping the troop however he can. Being a good leader can only be learned by doing and troop leadership positions allow the scout to make decisions, lead discussions, and encourage others.

Hello I recently rejoined the Scouts as a Asst Scout Master and Committee man. I wanted to know if the Scouts have ever given it thought to come up with a KNOT Award to show what rank the Adult earned when he was a Young man. You have it for the Webelo Court of Honor and The Religious award earned when we were young . Othewise can i wear my metal Life Scout emblem on my Adult uniform. Thanks for your time

@Dennis - Adult BSA members can wear their Arrow of Light, Eagle Scout, Venturing Silver, Quartermaster, and Religious Emblem patches that they earned as a youth.
There is also an Adult Religious emblem which is different from the youth version and needs to be earned while an adult member.
I doubt many people would have a problem with you wearing your Life pin, but it's not correct, and the Guide to Awards and Insignia states, "the advancement program is limited to youth members only."

Follow Me, Boys
