Pack 501 "Swag Vest"

As an option, Cub scouts wear red felt vests called a "Swag Vest".
On this vest, boys get to attach all of the extra patches from special events and recognitions that are not worn on the uniform.
For the Pack, we receive similar most often in the form of ribbons attached to our Pack Flag.
