"patch to be worn on swim trunks". Seriously?? You do know how often teenage boys outgrow clothes, or have more than 1 pair. While it is not a merit badge, the boys do work hard for it, usually in addition to the other badge work done in camp, while others use their free time for fun. Is there a reason it can not be worn, say on the back of the sash?

rkies - Only 'temporary' patches may be worn on the back of the merit badge sash. The Mile Swim patch is not a temporary patch; it is in the 'aquatics' category.
See www.scouting.org/scoutsource/Media/InsigniaGuide/06F.aspx for many other aquatic recognitions that only go on the swim trunks.
