Eye Roll

I saw this at the Distro Center today. This patch is not authorized. Do yourself a favor and get a REAL Assistant Scoutmaster patch, since THERE IS NOT SUCH BSA POSITION as "Eleven-Year-Old Scout Leader." This is just someone's idea to make a buck off your Church service.

Well, go ahead and buy it, if you have to have one for your collection, but it has no business being on your uniform.

A while ago I picked up a used uniform at the thrift store that had an old "Blazer Scout Leader" patch on it. It looked just like this one, but with the older name. This kind of stuff has been going on for quite some time now.

Umm,yes this is an authorized patch, akin to the Webelos Den Leader patch recognized throughout Scouting--which position one could argue is just a Den Leader serving under the stewardship of the Cubmaster like the Bear and Wolf Den Leaders. It attests to the special relationship that exists between the Church and BSA.
