uniform

The Scout uniform helps to achieve the objectives of Scouting. The uniform by itself cannot make a good Scout or a good Troop, but its use has been proven to improve both the Scout and the Troop because it is a visible symbol of Scouting and unity. Refer to pages 20-23 in the Boy Scout Handbook. Each scout is required to have and wear, within a reasonable amount of time after joining the Troop, the following uniform items:
