Troop 20 recognizes the invaluable contribution our mothers make with our ”Mom’s ribbons” and ask our moms on hand to come to the stage with their son who is advancing in rank. Moms should place the pins representing your scout’s accomplishments on your ribbon. Please wear your ribbon proudly whether or not your son will be recognized for advancement. Obviously, we want Dad up there in the event Mom isn’t on hand.
Here is the proper way to display your scout sash:
Merit badges ONLY are worn on the FRONT of the sash. On the back of the sash, additional merit badges may be sewn as well as temporary insignia may be sewn. "Temporary insignia" is defined by the BSA as special insignia for participating in unit, District, Council or national events or programs. Previous rank, service stars and pins are NOT to be worn on the sash. The 50-Miler, large camp patches, Historic Trails Award, aquatic emblems (like Mile Swim or Boardsailing emblems) and other "equipment decoration insignia" do NOT go onto a merit badge sash -- there are separate places for those items.
