The traditional Class A uniform or Full Uniform is usually worn at the troop meetings, at service projects, Court of Honors, and Scoutmaster Conferences. Class B uniform is the Troop T-shirt which you receive when you join the troop. This is worn to some meetings and campouts. Wearing uniforms is a sign of belonging and identification and an expectation of certain conduct.
The traditional Class A uniform consists of the official BSA tan shirt, green shoulder tabs, BSA web belt with scout buckle, and BSA long pants (or BSA shorts together with BSA socks with red tops).
