Uniform and Patch Placement

Your uniform shows others that you are a member of the Boy Scouts of America and a member of Troop 801.  It shows your commitment to the Scouting principles and shows you are a good citizen and are ready and willing to help other people.  Your uniform is also a symbol of your own hard work and advancement.  Your behavior while wearing your uniform reflects on yourself, on our Troop and on the Boy Scouts of America.  Wear your uniform as you would conduct yourself:  with cleanliness, pride and respect!
