Uniform

To many adults who were Scouts in their early years, Boy Scouts of America has become sloppy.  Nowhere is this more evident than in the way some Scouts wear their uniforms.  Wearing uniform shirts unbuttoned and hanging out has become an accepted practice.  In Troop 27 we hold the wearing of the uniform in the highest regard.  It is a reflection of the Scout, the Troop, and Boy Scouts of America in general.  As such, great emphasis should be placed on “getting it right”.  Please refer the following links to see the correct placement of all badges, patches, and knots.  Thanks!

Uniform Resources

Although the initial investment in a Scout uniform may seem expensive, the uniform is rugged and the Scout will usually outgrow it before it wears out. When buying uniforms keep growth in mind.
