Today the Boy Scouts of America introduced a Morse Code Interpreter Strip for wear on youth and adult uniforms to designate those who are proficient in Morse Code. It denotes their availability for emergency communications and other types of supporting communication for Scouting and the community.
The patch design spells out the word M-O-R-S-E in Morse Code.

This is awsome! The impact this will make far outweighs the physical strip. How do we get them?
You can order the strips through BSA Supply at 1-800-323-0736. The order number is 615120. This information is provided in the overview document.
