A Boy Scout who has earned a one-year service star wears a one year service star with a green backing (don’t throw away the green disc!) When that Boy Scout earns a two-year service star, he REPLACES the one-year pin with the two year pin. He does NOT wear both stars. Same for three, four and five year pins...they are replaced with the current pin representing "the current status of the individual."
A Boy Scout who was a Cub Scout for five years can wear a five year Cub Scout year pin with yellow backing disc on his Boy Scout uniform. When he earns a year pin as a Boy Scout, he wears a one-year pin with the appropriate green backing disc for Boy Scouting. When that Boy Scout earns a two-year service star, he REPLACES the one-year pin with the two year pin. In this case, he wears two stars - one representing his Cub Scouting experience and the other representing his Boy Scouting experience.
Service stars are worn at the option of the wearer. There's nothing that says that you have to wear them; but if you do decide to do so, wear them properly and with pride. If you do choose to wear them, remember that service stars are worn centered on the left pocket button slightly above the left pocket seam.
Penn's Woods Council has a drawer full of the pins and bars for sale. I have not seen them on any uniform but we have them available.wagionvigil wrote:AT one time there was a Pin for attendance. Then there were bars that were added for each year after that for loss of a better example it was like they give for Sunday School Attendance. You had to attend X number of meetings out of whatever.

Frankly, the topic/use has never come up at PLC or Troop Committee meeting......
