Welcome! This forum has a treasure trove of great info – Scouters helping Scouters! Just a heads up, though - all content, information, and opinions shared on this forum are those of the author, not the BSA.
I read bugler was added to the back log. I don’t understand what this means.
I have sea scouts who are BSA Honor Guard members via American Legion Post . Will there be a youth advancement in the near future for the scouts who participate in ceremonies and memorials honoring our veterans?
We also have a scout who is a bugler. There is a bugler patch for Boy Scouts there’s also a bugler patch Sea Scouts can purchase, but there are no official credentials or honorary advancements to select.
It means a request for a change / addition has been logged. When the programmers plan what to work on, they prioritize bugs, then updating to meet current changes to the BSA programs, then feature additions and improvements. The request for a bugler is now on the list of potential feature additions that people asked for. It will be up to that group to prioritize the request.
Reference not found yet for a “bugler” or “boatswain piper” badge of office for Sea Scouts BSA in 2022 revision to insignia guide. “bugler” is not a badge of office for Sea Scouts BSA in 2022 revision to insignia guide.
Scouting BSA Troop Bugler
This position of responsibility (POR) should be in advancement database already.
A bugler plays the bugle (or a similar instrument) to mark key moments during the day on troop outings, such as reveille and lights out. (Bugler is not an approved POR for the Eagle Scout rank.)
