Frequently Asked Questions

Is the old sash my son was given by his grandfather acceptable for his wear?
Once an item is an official part of the BSA uniform or an official piece of insignia of the Order of the Arrow, it may be worn, even if it is not the "current" uniform or insignia being sold. Once it's official, it's always official. Since your son was given an Ordeal sash by his grandfather, and your son remains an Ordeal honor member, he may wear the sash, no matter how old it is, as long as it's presentable.

We suggest that he reserve his grandfather's memento for ceremonial occasions. Then he can use the Ordeal sash from his own ordeal for work crews and service projects, and times in his OA life when he may get it dirty.
